Posted: Updated:

YAKIMA, Wash.-- The Salvation Army surprised a major community member at their annual luncheon today with a major award.

Dale Carpenter received the "OTHERS" Award for his service to the community.

It's the highest honor the Salvation Army gives out.

Carpenter has volunteered with many different organizations across Yakima, including Camp Prime Time, Multiple Sclerosis, and the Muscular Dystrophy association.

He also served on the Salvation Army Board.

"Stunned today, shocked beyond... This is the first time this has ever happened, where I didn't know it was coming," Carpenter said.

Carpenter encouraged the audience to share more of their time as volunteers and to reach out to others.
