Kroc Center Needs Swimsuits!
Swimsuits needed for all ages!
Every day, children and adults are turned away from the Kroc Aquatics Center because they can't afford to buy a swimsuit. Can you help? We need new OR gently used one piece swimsuits for girls and adult women and trunks for boys and adult men. Please drop off at the Kroc Center or call 905-3525 to arrange a pick up.
Discovering Potential at the Kroc Center!
Mrs. Joan Kroc envisioned a place where people of every age and circumstance were encouraged to explore their unique gifts and talents. Her vision was to create a place where all people regardless of social status had access to a world-class recreational, educational and cultural-arts facility. She expressed her desire that “tens of thousands of children” would be able to enjoy such a facility. And, she saw The Salvation Army as the perfect partner for creating such a place.
The Salvation Army Ray and Joan Kroc Corps Community Center located in South Omaha is such a place. It offers a holistic experience by providing a variety of programs, events and services in education, the arts, athletics and spiritual development to people of all ages throughout the metro area.
