The Morris Community YMCA’s Capital Campaign, which is raising funds to develop a new 60,000-square-foot YMCA and healthcare center adjacent to Morris Grade School, is excited to announce a generous $200,000 gift from Aux Sable, 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. In May, the Y broke ground on the future Morris Hospital YMCA, which will be built in partnership with Morris Hospital and 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.
“With each passing day we are getting closer to fulfilling our vision for the Y in Morris and the surrounding communities in Grundy County,” Chief Operating Officer Missy Durkin said. “The incredible support shown by local businesses like Aux Sable continues to inspire us, and we know this gift will have a meaningful impact on the future site.”
