Pool of money keeps YWCA open | Lewiston Sun Journal

LEWISTON — The YWCA of Central Maine will stay open after all.

Since announcing its closure last Thursday, the 130-year-old institution has gathered $75,000 in donations and the promise of another $125,000 by the end of the week.

Leaders also plan to immediately begin a $1 million statewide fundraising campaign, aimed at erasing more than $700,000 in debt and making energy efficient improvements to the YWCA’s nearly 40-year-old East Avenue building.

“We’re running so fast,” said Lee Young, president of the YWCA’s five-member board of directors.

On Monday morning, one week after they voted to close, the board voted to remain open.
