PRINCETON, Ind (WEHT) – Duke Energy is donating $10,000 to the YMCA of Southwestern Indiana to help bring a ‘Y’ to Gibson County. This donation is the latest in the $2.5 million capital campaign to renovate the former Lowell Elementary school into a YMCA community center.
“In neighborhoods across the nation, YMCAs strengthen community and connect people of all ages and backgrounds,” said Duke Energy Community Relations Manager Kurt Phegley. “Having a YMCA here will be a great asset.”
Last month, Toyota Indiana donated $1 million to the project. The Toyota Indiana YMCA is slated to open in early 2022.
