On This Day In History: April 15


In 1955, Ray Kroc opens the first McDonald’s restaurant in Des Plaines, Illinois. In October 2003, when his wife, Joan Kroc, passed away, she left $1.5 billion to The Salvation Army – the largest single gift to any single charity ever given! This gift was designated to build a series of state-of-the-art Salvation Army Ray & Joan Kroc Corps Community Centers. Did you know that Texas has its very own Salvation Army Ray & Joan Kroc Center in Kerrville?! Check out their awesome new website!
