BYC Receives Grant To Buy Old YMCA Facility

Baker Youth Club has announced the purchase of the YMCA facility on Smith Street in Warsaw and is starting a capital campaign project to help with the funding. The goal of the project is to sell their current facility located on W. Market Street in Warsaw, and use the money made from the sale to purchase and renovate the YMCA. This would allow BYC to move to a facility that is 3 times larger than their current facility. This will allow them to better serve the needs of the community. Baker Youth Club applied and received a grant through The Dekko Foundation to help with the project. They will receive a $100,000 grant upfront to help start the transition. They have also been awarded a dollar for dollar matching grant by Dekko. For more information on how you can help, contact Tracy Furnivall at (574)267-8771.
