The Head of the Salvation Army Receives only $13,000 in Salary Per Year-Fiction!

 

 

 

Summary of the eRumor:  
According to this eRumor, the head of the American Red Cross is paid more than $650,000 per year, the head of the United Way is paid $375,000 per year and the head of the Salvation Army is paid only $13,000 per year, something to keep in mind next time you are making donations to non-profit organizations.
 

The Truth:
