Dannemora Federal Credit Union (DFCU) has announced a milestone $350,000 donation supporting the Plattsburgh YMCA’s ongoing renovation of the former CVPH Wellness Center on New York Road into a state-of-the-art health and wellness facility.

Plattsburgh YMCA CEO Justin Ihne applauded DFCU’s contribution and continuing community commitment, saying “We are immensely grateful that Dannemora FCU is providing this significant gift to the New YMCA project. This meaningful level of support shows a commitment to not only the YMCA, but to our shared North Country communities.”

Dannemora FCU President and CEO Chris Hay said, “We are honored to continue our commitment to the community by partnering with the Plattsburgh YMCA. The Y provides countless opportunities for families across Clinton, Essex and Franklin counties, whether it’s through sports offerings, the child care and after-school programming, summer camps or general fitness programming. This is a transformative project for our region, and I can’t wait to see how the Y can grow with this new facility!”

The New Plattsburgh YMCA on New York Road plans include a fitness center, child watch areas and studios and meeting/conference rooms, just to name a few. The YMCA’s strong history in the community will only lead to brighter futures for the North Country, credit union officials said. Both DFCU and YMCA live the motto of “Small enough to know you. Large enough to serve you."

“The YMCA is a critical part of our community for all ages. The YMCA is something that will greatly impact our current and future generations, and we are so proud to be able to donate to their legacy and watch them flourish in their new location! This is going to be an amazing chapter for their team and everyone who helped make this possible,” Business Development Manager Anna Hewitt-Channell said.

DFCU and the YMCA have been impacting the community for decades and are looking to leave a legacy for future generations.
