The YMCA is relocating from its current home on Chestnut Street to Tower Square in the heart of downtown. The new location, albeit smaller in size, will be a vast improvement with many updates to create a new state-of-the-art facility. But, with improvement comes many costs.
As a place that makes incredible strides to help better the community by promoting youth development, healthy living, and social responsibility, it is now time for local businesses and private donors to step in and help out the institution that has given back in so many ways.
From August 31 – Sept. 2, Balise will be hosting a fundraising event at both Car Wash locations (E. Columbus Avenue in Springfield and on the corner of Riverdale Street and Wayside Avenue in West Springfield). The Ultimate Car Wash option (usually $20) will be discounted to only $5, with all of the proceeds going to benefit the move and improvement of the YMCA of Greater Springfield.
