Dear Kroc Center Members & Guests,


On Tuesday, March 17, leadership at The Salvation Army Central Territory Headquarters made the decision that is in the best interest of our communities. As such, our facility will close at 5pm today, March 17, 2020. At this time, we have been instructed to remain closed through March 31.


Please note, as stated before, this situation is very fluid. Updates will be communicated through our social media platforms, email, and text messages. If you have not enrolled in our Kroc text alerts, please do so now by texting KrocQcy to 24365. You will be added to the list and will begin receiving all alerts that are sent out.



1.   The Salvation Army Kroc Center will continue to be a distribution site for meals.

2.   In addition, The Salvation Army Family Services and Emergency Shelter will remain open - with modified protocols and procedures that were set in place on March 16.

come in - this information will be updated.




On Friday, March 20, 2020, Illinois Gov. J.B. Pritzker issued an order requiring Illinois residents to 'stay at home'.


Prior to the shelter in place order, The Kroc Center had planned to reopen early in April. At this time, due to the order, the facility is closed until further notice.


As we receive more information we will be keeping our #KrocStars informed via our social media pages, website, and text alerts.
