New Kroc Center Opens in Harrisburg Mill Village

Salvation Army opens Augusta Kroc Center doors

Augusta Chronicle, Sunday, July 17, 2011

 

After seven years and a $22 million local fundraising effort, the only thing that still stood between the new Kroc Center and the people of Augusta was a long indigo-colored ribbon. On Sunday, that ribbon was cut.

The Salvation Army dedicated its new Augusta Kroc Community Center, a 100,000-square-foot fitness, education, performing arts and worship complex on Broad Street in Harrisburg.

Kroc centers are made possible nationwide though a $1.7 billion donation by the late Joan Kroc. They are built in low-income, urban neighborhoods surrounded by higher-income neighborhoods, and their purpose is to provide facilities, programs and services that encourage positive, life-changing experiences.

At Sunday's ceremony in Augusta, the Salvation Army's Col. Terry Griffin read a biblical passage from Acts 3, about a lame beggar who was healed at the gates of the temple.
