Salvation Army appoints Bartell's executive to local division board

SEATTLE — The Salvation Army's Northwest division has appointed an executive of Bartell Drugs to its advisory board, Bartell's said Thursday.

The regional drug store chain announced the appointment of VP marketing Theron Andrews, saying it continued a "long-standing relationship" between Bartell's and the charity organization, which includes the annual "Toy 'N' Joy" drive for disadvantaged children during the holiday season.

"Theron's heart for service and extensive marketing experience makes him a great fit for our advisory board," Salvation Army Northwest division major Preston Rider said.
