US Bank supports YMCA pool project
Chris Brokaw, bank officer for US Bank, Bowling Green, presents Twin Pike Family YMCA Executive Director Marsha Garrison (center) with a $1,500 check from US Bancorp Foundation. Also on hand for the presentation was US Bank commercial/ag loan officer Ryan Rapp. The contribution was made as part Phase Three Fundraising Campaign to build an indoor aquatics center at the Y facility in Louisiana. US Bankcorp Foundation will be recognized for its donation as a member of the YMCA’s Founders First 500 club.
“We’re moving closer each day towards achieving our goal of raising $1.25 million in pledges and contributions for the pool project by July 10, 2013,” said Garrison. “Accomplishing this task guarantees the Twin Pike Family YMCA will receive an additional $500,000 from the J.E. and L.E. Mabee Foundation. ” Garrison commented that as of Dec. 10, the YMCA has under $440,000 left to raise to meet the challenge grant requirement. “Donations of any size to the Y’s pool project make the perfect holiday gift for family and friends. It’s a great way to recognize loved ones because it fits perfectly and it’s a gift that keeps on giving when the pool is completed, because everyone in the Twin Pike area will be able to enjoy the facility,” Garrison added.
