Divisional and Regional Headquarters will Remain in DC

The Salvation Army announced plans to keep its National Capital and Virginia Division and National Capital Area Command headquarters offices where they currently are – at 2626 Pennsylvania Avenue, NW, in downtown Washington, DC.  The announcement came earlier this week by the new Divisional Commander, Lt. Colonel Mark H. Israel, during an employee assembly.

“The Salvation Army has been approached several times within the last two years about selling this property,” said Lt. Col. Mark Israel. “While we carefully evaluated each inquiry, after much consideration, we determined it was in The Salvation Army’s best interests to keep our headquarters right where they are.”

“This is welcome news,” said National Capital Area Commander Major Lewis R. Reckline, who noted that several factors went into the decision to stay at our Foggy Bottom location.  “We believe maintaining our headquarters within the District of Columbia is the right thing to do. The Salvation Army history in the nation’s capital is strong. It’s a relationship that dates back about 135 years.”

Major Reckline also noted that staying in the District of Columbia is mutually beneficial for both, the National Capital Area Command and National Capital and Virginia Division, since the two share office space. Approximately 60 employees and officers work out the five-story office building located in the Foggy Bottom section of the city.

“We are grateful to have a strong presence here in the nation’s capital and for the support we receive from the community every day,” said Major Reckline. “The Salvation Army feeds and shelters those individuals and families in the most need.”
