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.
The Salvation Army's Red Kettle campaign in southern Kent County is made possible through the help of volunteers and staff from the Kroc Center.
Volunteering is one of the most enjoyable things you'll ever do, as well as one of the most fulfilling. Kroc volunteers are held to the same standards as Kroc employees including application, background check, Safe From Harm child protection training, and orientation.
Volunteer Opportunities include but are not limited to:
• Helping out with events like Spring Break and National Night Out
• Assisting with Youth Sports programs like AYSO
• Mentoring students at Brookside Elementary through Kids Hope USA
• Serve on The Kroc's Advisory Board and Committees
The Kroc Center relies on more than its paid staff to meet the mission of Joan Kroc. Mrs. Kroc was clear in her intent: The Kroc Centers were to be places where children can learn from one another, individuals can seek personal growth and development, and a place for the community to gather in leisure and fellowship in an environment that embraces the love and acceptance that Jesus Christ teaches us. As a volunteer, you can help us make that dream a reality!
