Springs Valley Bank & Trust Company has donated $50,000 to the Tri-County YMCA’s Reimagine Your Y. Capital Campaign.

The YMCA announced Thursday 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.

To fund the expansion, the YMCA launched the Reimagine Your Y. Capital Campaign with a goal of raising $2.3 million.

Supporting the YMCA aligns with Springs Valley’s mission to enhance the quality of life in our communities, according to a press release. The YMCA strengthens the communities through services, such as, health and wellness programs, summer camps, youth sports programs, group exercise classes and child watch.

“I am proud to work for a community bank that is willing to allow its employees to serve the community and give financially to causes that are important to its employees,” said Marty Kaiser with Springs Valley who is also a Tri-County YMCA board member.

“Springs Valley’s commitment to focusing on our local communities will allow our local organizations to succeed, grow, and flourish,” said Mallory Wendholt, Springs Valley marketing specialist and Tri-County YMCA board member. “With the help of our donors the Tri-County YMCA will continue to be a vital part of our communities and enhance the communities it serves. I am proud to work for a Community Bank that believes in supporting local initiatives and gives back to local communities.”
