Joan Kroc made the largest gift to a nonprofit ever made in the U.S.: $1.5 billion. With that money, the Salvation Army was charged with an important mission: to build 30 Kroc Centers around the country in underserved neighborhoods.

PLAYTIME worked with the Biloxi Kroc Center planners to create a soft-foam water slide in the shape of a shrimp. The slide honors the shrimping industry that has been so critical for that region’s economy.
