Salvation Army Foundation Blessing

The Salvation Army blessed the site of the future Corp Community Center on Monday afternoon by placing prayer card written by donors and supporters in the foundation. When complete, the center will include a chapel, gymnasium, kitchen, multipurpose room and administration offices. The Center is one of the buildings being constructed in the Rathgeber Village on Manor Road in East Austin.

Square One is honored and excited to continue providing integrated project management services to such a special, meaningful project.

“We wanted the foundation of this building to be prayer so that everything that takes places in this facility moving forward would be a blessing to this community,” said Area Commander Maj. Andrew Kelly.
