The Salvation Army Ray and Joan Kroc Corps Community Center Tour and Event

Thursday, October 13, 2011, 4:30 - 7:30 pm

4200 Wissahickon Ave, Philadelphia, PA

Join us for a networking event and educational tour of the recently completed Ray and Joan Kroc Corps Community Center.

A first step in the social, economic, and environmental revitalization of one of Philadelphia’s most blighted industrial areas, the $72 million, 130,000 SF Salvation Army facility features a conference and training center, aquatic center, and a variety of programming to serve both families and individuals. The site, a 12 acre brownfield tract, was the former home of Budd Co., the proposed site for a casino, and, most recently, a city auto impound lot. Amy Stein and Christopher Mendel will lead guided tours for all attendees of both the building and the site, addressing your specific questions and offering a behind-the-scenes look at this amazing new community center.
