About Salvation Army of Alexandria and the Red Kettles
The Salvation Army of Alexandria helps residents in Washington DC, suburban Maryland, and northern Virginia by providing food, clothing, and shelter for those in need as well as assistance paying rent and bills. They became established in Washington, DC in 1885 and they have since expanded into the cities and neighborhoods of Maryland and Virginia to provide assistance to a larger area.
