Salvation Army Kroc Center reopened Monday
People on the Gulf Coast were looking to shake the quarantine pounds off at the Salvation Army Kroc Center.
Residents were excited to get back into their exercise routine with the reopening of the facility. Members are allowed to work out by reserving a one hour and 45 minute block of time.
Staff members are doing everything they can to ensure social distancing as well as disinfect the rooms, gymnasium, and equipment on a consistent basis.
Reopening isn’t the only thing the Salvation Army has done to contribute during the pandemic, as volunteers have come together to help out the community in a variety of ways. Salvation Army Area Commander Major Bradley Caldwell said, “We’ve been feeding school children from the parking lot out front throughout this pandemic. We are continuing to provide those lunches, even today. We are feeding from our food pantries in Lucedale, Pascagoula, and Gulfport. That never stopped since the pandemic began. We have recently re-engaged in shower and laundry programs for the disenfranchised down there in Gulfport.”
The facility will open to members for fitness only. Day passes will not be accepted at this time.
