Family friends and the community gathered on Aug. 22 at the Wings of Heritage room in the Nessler Civic Center in Texas City to honor Charles and Mary Ellen Doyle. The Doyles are long-time supporters of The Salvation Army of Galveston County and dedicated volunteers within the community.

Charles and Mary Ellen were presented with the Champion of Hope Award during the annual Boots & BBQ fundraising event co-chaired by Vivian Hernandez and Karen Etheridge.
