Hayes-Taylor YMCA more than halfway to $11.1M goal for new facility

GREENSBORO, N.C. — The Hayes-Taylor YMCA is more than halfway to its $11.1 million goal to open a new facility in Southeast Greensboro.

On Thursday morning, YMCA President and CEO Greg Jones said $7.5 million had been raised so far. 

At a 10 a.m. press conference, the Y is laying out details about the new building and project timeline.  It is also recognizing donors like The Joseph M. Bryan Foundation, The Cemala Foundation and Lorilliard.

The new facility will be located in Barber Park off the Gateway University Research Park.

The former Hayes-Taylor YMCA was sold to N.C. A&T State University in October.
