San Diego's Kroc Center
LONG BEACH — The local Salvation Army chapter is hoping to find out soon whether it will receive a $50 million grant to build a large community center in Central Long Beach, a Salvation Army official said Tuesday.

The endowment from the late Joan Kroc, wife of Ray Kroc, the McDonald's restaurant company founder, would build the center on the 19-acre Hamilton Bowl, also known as Chittick Field, adjacent to Long Beach City College's Pacific Coast Campus."
