The Ritsons have been advocates of The Salvation Army since the early 1980’s and have served as board members at the Steubenville Corps. Robert was a banker and served in both World War II and the Korean War. Mary Jane taught kindergarten and first grade. Some of the Ritsons’ other interests include Kiwanis, The Red Cross, Neighborhood House, and Women’s Club. Their gift is being made to the Steubenville, Ohio Corps where they hope it will help The Salvation Army to continue its work, as it has done since 1888.
