SNOOP DOGG has signed on to help raise money for a $140 million dollar youth center in one of LONG BEACH, CA's poorest neighborhoods, reports ALLHIPHOP.COM. SNOOP, a native of LONG BEACH, is recording a song to donate proceeds to THE KROC CENTER, a new facility run by THE SALVATION ARMY.
THE KROC will sit on 19 acres of land and will include a two-story, 84,000 square-foot recreation center with a gymnasium, a fitness center, gardening areas, walking trails, pools and other facilities to train future athletes and Olympians. SNOOP DOGG will record a track with all of the proceeds -- an estimated $5 million dollars -- going towards the facility.
Professional football player WILLIE MCGINEST has also signed on to promote the center's endeavors and recently made a sizeable donation.
