Another corporate donation for Intersection Connection
Old National Bank is donating to the Intersection Connection project in Lafayette. The company is giving $125,000, which will fund a Child Watch room at the new Lafayette Family YMCA, for parents to use while they attend onsite programs. The room will include the Old National Bank name.
Old National area president Bob Smith says they were eager to get involved in the project.
“We learned of Intersection Connection a couple years ago and all the great things the partners are going to do with JA (Junior Achievement), Ivy Tech, IU Health and many others, and we just thought it was a great way to contribute to Lafayette’s future.”
The core of the proposed Intersection Connection project is the new YMCA facility. Executive Director Paul Cramer says the facility is starting to take shape after several years of planning.
“It has a childcare component, three full gyms, wellness center, teen center, family activity center, inter-generational area – there are a lot of different areas in it,” he says. “The rollout of it is all based on our fundraising timetables, and as that moves forward, we tailor make our building to our donors.”
The building is planned for property adjacent to Ivy Tech-Lafayette and will cover 175,000 square feet.
