The Future Poole Family YMCA

You're helping us grow Garner! Thanks to your support, we have raised more than $7.2 million toward our $7 million dollar goal to build the future Poole Family YMCA.

Thanks to a generous donation from the Bell and Holding families, the YMCA owns 14 acres on Aversboro Road, located in the heart of Garner. Adjacent to White Deer Park and across the street from Lake Benson Park, this is the perfect location to build our permanent YMCA home in Garner.

Lonnie and Carol Poole also believe in the YMCA. They know that a permanent YMCA home in Garner will ensure the town's strong future. Lonnie Poole grew up in Garner and knows it's the perfect place to put down roots. That's why Lonnie and Carol Poole have supported our capital campaign and are proud to have the YMCA of Garner named the Poole Family YMCA.

Listen to Lonnie Poole speak about his family's history with the Town of Garner and why he feels so strongly about building a YMCA.
