Although the YMCA building has been open since April of this year, Pinpoint was an eager supporter of this project and officially committed $12,500 to the project before the fundraising segment wrapped up in February of 2018. “Community support is an important component of Pinpoint’s business model,” stated Becky Jobman, Executive Director for the Gothenburg Health Foundation, the non-profit organization responsible for raising the $4.95 million for the YMCA, “this financial contribution is a clear indicator of Pinpoint’s dedication to the communities their employees and customers live and work within.”
 
Each year, Pinpoint donates to a wide variety of local youth causes, events, and charitable organizations. “The Gothenburg YMCA project made much sense for our company to support financially,” stated Tom Shoemaker, President of Pinpoint, “we are excited to partner with the YMCA and progressively invest in the community’s future.”
 
The YMCA building officially opened to the public in April of this year.  As a result of significant local generosity from many local families and businesses such as Pinpoint, the YMCA building was fully funded when opened.
 
The Gothenburg YMCA has year-round recreation opportunities for all ages and socio-economic backgrounds. The facility includes a gymnasium; a four-lane swimming pool with space for kids play and physical therapy; an indoor walking track; a wellness center with weights and cardio machines; a spacious group exercise room; men’s, women’s and family locker rooms; a fun and educational child watch room, and a comfortable social lobby with free Wi-Fi access.
 
In addition to all these primary components, there is an abundance of educational space available depending on community wants and needs. This space could be used to provide mentorship programs, after-school programs and career development opportunities for students, to name a few ideas considered.
 
The YMCA is a non-profit organization focusing on strengthening the community through youth development, healthy living, and social responsibility.
