Kroc Center Exemplifies the Spirit of Solano

Spirit of Solano 2014We congratulate Capt. Jonathan Harvey and the entire Kroc Center team for being honored with the Spirit of Solano Award presented by the Fairfield-Suisun Chamber of Commerce.

Since opening in Suisun City, the Kroc Center and Capt. Harvey have made immeasurable contributions to the local community and the entire region, and we couldn’t be more proud to have them as a vital community partner.

Here’s how the Chamber of Commerce described the Kroc Center and Capt. Harvey:

It is no accident that there is a climbing wall by the reception area at the Salvation Army Kroc Center in Suisun City. It’s a strong message that anyone can scale the heights with just a little bit of help.

Thanks to the generosity of Joan Kroc, widow of McDonald’s owner Ray Kroc, many of those entering the Center will be able to get that help. Mrs. Kroc left the lion’s share of her multi-billion dollar estate to The Salvation Army to build life-transforming facilities across the country that would offer the finest of opportunities to those who need it the most.

Captain Jonathan Harvey, the Center’s administrator, is excited by all the possibilities Mrs. Kroc has given children and adults with her gift.  And he feels a sense of responsibility to make her dreams and the dreams of those who use it come true.

Because of the Suisun City Kroc Center, everyone has access to art, music, education, and recreation.  The Kroc Center have everything under one roof – you can swim, learn Spanish, take a fitness class, see a comedy show, play basketball or climb their rock wall.

The Salvation Army Kroc Center has demonstrated superb business practices, community involvement, and has shown to be a proven leader with our up and coming youth.  The Fairfield-Suisun Chamber of Commerce is proud to present the Spirit of Solano Award for Suisun City to Captain Jonathan Harvey.

The Kroc Center is located at 586 East Wigeon Way, Suisun City, 94585, adjacent to the Fire Station, Suisun City Library, Hall Park and Suisun Elementary School.
