FERDINAND — German American Bank presented a check for $75,000 to the Tri-County YMCA’s Reimagine Your Y Capital Campaign. These funds will have a direct impact on the facility and programming expansion the YMCA plans to complete.
The YMCA announced last month that it plans to begin construction on an 11,000-square-foot expansion at the Ferdinand location at 131 E. 16th St. that will double the wellness center and add a new 5,000-square-foot program center. Construction is scheduled to begin in early 2020 and take about six months.
“The Tri-County YMCA is a perfect fit for our giving culture,” said German American Bank South Central Regional President Brent Sternberg. “As a community banking organization, we are dedicated to helping individuals, families and businesses achieve greater prosperity and quality of life. This aligns well with the mission of the Tri-County YMCA to help individuals of all ages and diverse circumstances build and maintain healthy spirits, minds and bodies.”
Tri-County YMCA Executive Director Mike Steffe said: “German American’s generous donation will help us strengthen our communities through offering a variety of services, such as health and wellness programs, summer camps, family time, and childcare. The expansion will have a positive impact on our organization across the board.
Sternberg added that the donation impacts quality of life for individuals and families in Dubois, Spencer and Perry counties.
“These three counties have been loyal and supportive of the German American team and we are pleased to give back through the good works of the Tri County YMCA,” he said.
The YMCA has raised more than $1.9 million toward its goal of $2.3 million.
