10 Things About Maggie T. Watkins & Salvation Army, San Diego Women’s Auxiliary


#1 I was born in Princeton, New Jersey, but when I was 5 years old, my father took a job in San Francisco and we moved to Orinda, California.

#2 If we did not live in San Diego, we would choose Cabo San Lucas. We had our honeymoon there, have had a condo there for 20 years which we recently sold, and have just bought a house there.

#3 I love to get up early and run, but I will party late, given the opportunity!

#4 I have a Whoodle – Wheaten Terrier and Poodle mix. His name is Mr. Bojangles, which is too big for a 35-pound dog, so we call him Bo. Best dog ever.

#5 I was in an infomercial with soap star Susan Lucci using her microdermabrasion product. It aired for a couple of years.


#6 I would like to master the jitterbug. I love to dance.

#7 If I have free time, I go for a run.

#8 If I could write one law that everyone had to obey, it would be – “Be kind to everyone”.

#9 The Salvation Army provided emergency food and shelter to hundreds of San Diegans during the Pandemic, as well as Day Care for children whose parents were first responders.

#10 The Salvation Army’s programs are primarily supported through contributions from individuals, businesses and family foundations, with 81% of every dollar going directly to local programs. All monies raised will remain in San Diego to benefit social service programs of The Salvation Army.
