Ray and Joan Kroc Corps Community Center
The new facility is named after Ray and Joan Kroc, benefactors who donated more than $1.5 billion to the Salvation Army for the exclusive purpose of developing, constructing and operating several world-class recreational, educational and ministry centers throughout the United States. After a rigorous application process, officials at the Salvation Army’s Central Territorial Headquarters rewarded the Quincy Salvation Army with funds to build and maintain a new community center.
The 88,125 SF facility features a 350 seat Corps chapel including balcony seating, dressing rooms, green room and an AV room. The facility also includes space for a conference room, break room/kitchen and storage space and other support spaces such as a lounge, café, locker rooms, an activity game room, classrooms and a child services room. The community center also houses a gymnasium with a three lane elevated walking track, an aerobics/dance studio, climbing wall, aquatics center and a leisure pool.
