The Greater Joliet Area YMCA announced today that it will hold a Groundbreaking Ceremony for the new Morris Hospital YMCA from 3:30-5 p.m. on Wednesday, May 31. This much-anticipated celebration will be held at the site of the future facility, which will be located at 2200 W. Dupont Avenue on land adjacent to Morris Grade School.
Open to the community, this historic day will celebrate the amazing work of the Morris Community YMCA, our partners at Morris Hospital and Healthcare Centers, our generous donors and community partners, loyal YMCA members, and the wonderful individuals who have donated their time and talents serving on our Capital Campaign Leadership Cabinet.
Although fundraising efforts will still continue to ensure that this project is fully funded, this is the first step in making this new facility a reality for the residents of Grundy County. Construction of the new Y will get underway this summer. It is anticipated that the new Morris Hospital YMCA will open its doors to the community in early 2025.
