The Kroc has plenty of Fall-themed stuff coming to Kerrville

Fall Festivals, Angle Trees and a turkey drive are just some of the events the Salvation Army has planned.

The Salvation Army Ray & Joan Kroc Corps Community Center's Molly Putnam's fingers have been flying on the keyboard to get the word out about all the programs offered in the coming weeks. Here's a sample:


Angel Tree registration will take place from 9 a.m. to noon from Oct. 18-23 at The Salvation Army Social Services, 855 Hays Street. The program will be accepting applications for children up to 16 years old. Families wishing to apply for assistance will need to bring:

  • Photo ID.
  • Birth certificate for each child or proof of dependents.
  • Proof of residence.
  • Clothing and shoe sizes, along with a toy request for all children under the age of 17.

Applications cannot be processed without this information. Families, businesses, and organizations wishing to "Adopt an Angel" should contact (830) 315-5778. Angels Trees will be at The Salvation Army Kroc Center and local retailers starting Oct. 26. For additional information regarding The Salvation Army Angel Tree program, please contact Judy Johnson at (830) 315-5758 or Major Missy Romack at (830) 315-5751.



The Salvation Army will hold its first-ever Fill The Freezer campaign. They are asking the community for donations of 10-15-pound turkeys to help feed over 1,000 individuals. Monetary donations will also be accepted. A drop-off freezer will be at The Salvation Army Kroc Center. The Salvation Army will host its annual community Thanksgiving Dinner from 11 a.m.-1 p.m. on Nov. 25. Families and individuals can enjoy a traditional Thanksgiving dinner by dining in, take out or by delivery.


Want to run 3.1-miles in a Halloween costume? Well, the Salvation Army is providing the opportunity to do just that. The 5-kilometer run will be held Oct. 30 with a course that starts at The Salvation Army Kroc Center parking lot, running west on Holdsworth Drive before turning around at Harper Road and heading back to the finish line at the Kroc Center parking lot.
