Salvation Army Today – Night at the Nats

The Salvation Army National Capital Area Command hosted its second annual Night with the Nationals at Nationals Park. Around 300 Salvation Army officers, area corps members, advisory leaders, and donors attended the event. Students of the James B. Anderson Music and Arts Conservatory treated Nats fans to a concert as they entered the ballpark, and also played the national anthem on the field. The Salvation Army also accepted the Washington Nationals Spirit Award, an honor presented by the team to individuals and organizations that make a difference throughout the community.
