Robinson Steps Up for Salvation Army

By Don Morgan

The Salvation Army held one of it’s biggest fundraisers of the year on Tuesday and headlining the event, one of the biggest names in town.

Spurs legend David Robinson talked to us about the work the Salvation Army does and why it’s important for the community to get involved.

“It’s a Christian organization and it’s really here to promote the gospel of Christ and to me, that’s the most important thing we can do.”

Robinson’s generosity has been part of his legend here in San Antonio. He says it all started with a conversation he had with his mother.

“The very first thing she said was we’re going to sit down and we’re going to think about how you’re going to give back.”

And he has ever since he first put on a Spurs jersey.

The annual luncheon is the second biggest fundraiser the Salvation Army does all year, right behind the Red Kettle Campaign at Christmas time.
