The House That Hamburgers Built

Submitted by on September 28, 2009 – No Comment

Today is a great day in Salem, Oregon! It’s the official grand opening of the the long-awaited Ray and Joan Kroc Corps Community Center.

Kroc Centers around the United States are funded in large part by a generous gift from the estate of Joan B. Kroc, widow of Ray Kroc, the founder of McDonalds.  When her gift was announced to the world in January of 2004, it was the largest individual charitable gift in history. She gave it to The Salvation Army to build “centers of opportunity” for under-served communities around the country.

Salem Kroc features a worship center, sports and fitness facilities, fine arts and educational programs, after-school activities, and child care. Family memberships are available for purchase at $100 per month, regardless of the size of the family. Individual memberships are $25 per month, and $15 for kids. There are sponsorship opportunities available and scholarships for those who need financial help becoming a member.
