Greensburg YMCA to hold ice cream fundraiser at The Meadows
The Greensburg YMCA and The Meadows Frozen Custard have teamed up to raise money for youth programs.
The frozen custard shop will donate 35 percent of the proceeds collected from 4 p.m. to 7 p.m. Friday at its Greensburg location at 660 Mt. Pleasant St. to the YMCA.
The money supports the YMCA’s youth programs through the organization’s annual fundraising campaign.
Fundraising will be a top priority for the Greensburg YMCA as it prepares for a major renovation of its 106-year-old building on Maple Avenue. The extensive multi-phase renovation is expected to cost about $2 million.
It will renovate locker rooms and add a new family changing room. The first floor will be rearranged, making room for a larger lobby. There will be a new group exercise room and a larger child watch section.
Work will be done in phases. The first phase is renovating the women’s locker room, which has been closed more than a year due to mechanical problems. Women have been using the separate girl’s locker room.
YMCA officials plan to launch a major fundraising campaign in late summer or early fall to begin raising money for the work.
