Without pledges, Salem area could be denied project grant
February 23, 2006
The Salem area is this close to landing $60 million to build and operate a Kroc community center.
Supporters have demonstrated that this area's need is great and that their vision is strong. Now, one hurdle remains: persuading the Salvation Army's decision-makers that this community will support the center's operation above and beyond the generous grant.
That must happen soon -- within the next few weeks. A final proposal is due at regional headquarters by April 3."
