“‘Tis the season for giving! It is an honor to support our local Junius Ward Johnson Memorial YMCA’s capital campaign efforts to better serve the Vicksburg community, and we are thankful to our friends at the Y for all they do!” the bank wrote.
In 2018, the YMCA launched a $4 million expansion campaign which included building a new basketball gym and adding a new fitness area. CEO Phillip Doiron said it also included a new play area for children.
Trustmark has now donated a total of $75,000 to the YMCA for the expansion. The money will go to good use in helping the Y better serve the community.
The YMCA has been in its Clay Street location since 2002 when it relocated from downtown Vicksburg. Most of the construction is complete, and an indoor playground will be added shortly thanks to community donations such as those from Trustmark Bank.
