Salvation Army purchases land

Posted: Updated:

PASCO, Was--  The Salvation Army bought 4.5 acres of land near 20th and Lewis Streets.  The Pasco Salvation Army wants to consolidate their two buildings into one, and use the new building as a place where kids and adults can take part in community programs, social services as well as prayer.

But that building is still a ways away from becoming real.    Leaders say they're getting ready for a feasibility study within the coming weeks, and if everything goes according to plan, they'll be well on their way toward a new Pasco facility.

"We have always looked for a central location that would be best suited to meet the needs of the community, where people can come to the salvation army and get their services that way," says Major David Sholin.

If they still move forward after the feasibility study, the Salvation Army will need to raise about $3 million dollars.
