The Morris Community YMCA’s Capital Campaign, which is raising funds to develop a new 50,000-square-foot YMCA and healthcare center adjacent to Morris Grade School, is excited to announce a generous $25,000 gift from Cuttin Edge Lawn to Landscaping, which will be recognized in the future full facility.
For more than a decade, the Morris Community YMCA has been serving residents in Grundy County by offering programs in the areas of youth development, healthy living, and social responsibility. To further grow its impact in the community, the Y announced plans in 2018 for the development of a new full-facility in partnership with Morris Hospital & Healthcare Centers. While the YMCA hopes to open this new facility within the next several years, the size, scope, and timing will ultimately be determined by the generosity of the community in support of this project.
“Support from area businesses like Cuttin Edge shows the excitement for the YMCA in Morris and the surrounding communities,” Chief Operating Officer Missy Durkin said. “We are moving closer and closer to our goals every day, and we are looking forward to the impact these gifts will make on our future.”
