The Salvation Army of Oshkosh broke ground today on a $5 million addition and renovation project going down in history as the first time in 38 years that the Salvation Army has acquired the financial resources to make a major capital reinvestment in their facilities.
The ceremony was held at 1 p.m. on Thursday in conjunction with Bray Architects and Miron Construction. Many residents and businesses were also in attendance excited for what this new expansion will do for the center and the greater community.
According to officials, this addition will double the Salvation Army’s existing space. On the first floor, the expansion will bring an updated cafeteria and serving area, a new auditorium/chapel, an updated nursery/childcare space, multiple updated classrooms/meeting rooms, updated administration and social worker offices, updated men’s and women’s restrooms, and a new multipurpose room to accommodate the Salvation Army’s annual events such as the coat and toy drives.
