Make an Impact at the Kroc Center

Volunteer at the Kroc and change someone’s life,
maybe even your own.


Volunteering at the Kroc

The South Bend Kroc Center is more than just a gym or a pool. It’s a place where families become whole again, where the hungry are fed, where children find opportunities to grow, and where people find bridges out of poverty. Every week at the Kroc Center, there are opportunities for you to get involved and to be a part of changing someone’s life for the better. Who knows? Maybe the life you change will be your own. Ready to get involved? Email [email protected] to get started.
Community Service Opportunities
In keeping with the mission statement of The Salvation Army, The Kroc Center provides opportunities for St. Joseph County residents to complete court ordered community service.
An application must be completed and processed before community service work begins.
Community Service hours are available Monday-Friday in various shifts from 8AM – 9PM. For more information, contact Christa Back by email or by calling (574) 367-2346.
