The Salvation Army of Greenville, SC, announces the hiring of Debra Andrews as the director of the new Salvation Army Oconee Service Center.

Andrews also has a background in graphic design, drama and teaching. She has lived in Oconee since 1990 and is closely in tune with the needs of the area.
“Between my experience working in nonprofits and living in Oconee, I hope to further the cause of The Salvation Army of Oconee,” Andrews says. “The Oconee Service Center will offer sustainable and holistic social services to those in need, and I am excited to do the most good for the people of Oconee.”
“The Salvation Army of Greenville welcomes Debra Andrews as the Oconee Service Center Director,” says Major Pete Costas, Area Commander of The Salvation Army of Greenville. “We are excited to see how she will guide Oconee’s transition from corps to service center and how she will sustain and grow The Salvation Army of Oconee’s social ministry and outreach services.”
