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 Busey Bank, 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 January, the City of Morris’s Development Review Committee approved the site and facility plan for the new Morris Hospital YMCA, which will be built in partnership with Morris Hospital and Healthcare Centers. Construction is expected to begin later this year. 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.
“We have reached many important milestones over the last year and support from area businesses like Busey Bank continues to move us closer to our ultimate goal with the new facility,” Chief Operating Officer Missy Durkin said. “We are excited for the future of this project and the impact it will have on Morris and the surrounding communities.”
