When you make a gift—money, time, or energy—to The Salvation Army Ray and Joan Kroc Corps Community Center, you become a part of the largest project ever undertaken by The Salvation Army. Your gift becomes grounded in the reputation, trust and credibility of The Salvation Army—which is well known for its continuing efforts of providing relief to those in need.
Every life deserves to shine. No one in need is turned away from the life-changing opportunities at The Kroc Center through our Membership Scholarship Program. With many of our families earning below the state of California's poverty line, this program is vital to many who enter our doors on a regular basis.
DONATE TO KROC MEMBERSHIP SCHOLARSHIPS
Students in grades K-5 receive homework help and a healthy snack. Kroc Center students participate in exciting activities such as soccer, computer classes, science experiments, art projects, swimming lessons, and fun recreation times throughout the Kroc Center. Donations help to fund the overall cost of the program since we do not pass the full cost of the program onto families.
DONATE TO THE
AFTER SCHOOL PROGRAM
What kids take home from our camps won't fit in a backpack. Our day camps provide everything a child needs to make great memories and learn that no matter what happens in life, they are cared for. Donations make it possible to send kids to camp who couldn't otherwise afford it.
KROC DAY CAMPS
