Kroc Community Center Coming to South Bend

A new community center is on the way to South Bend that will benefit area families.

A $40-million grant was given to the Salvation Army to build a Ray and Joan Kroc Community Center in South Bend.

The facility will go up at Alonzo Watson Park, at Chapin and Western Avenue.

The state-of-the-art center will have several features including an aquatics center, a gym, a recording studio, and a greenhouse.

Gladys Muhamman, a member on the Salvation Army Board of Directors stated, “It's a great project and it's added value to the neighborhood that we've been renovating and developing over the past few years."

Before the project becomes a reality, the community still needs to raise $10-million, which is their matching share of the endowment.

If all goes as planned construction will begin next spring.
