SULLIVAN, Ind. (WTWO/WAWV) — The City of Sullivan, Ind., in an effort to revitalize and reopen the Sullivan City Pool, has officially raised over $100,000 in community donations and grant dollars.
After launching a campaign called “Splash Sullivan” in the Spring of 2021, the City of Sullivan has seen multiple community events, fundraisers and support from the region, a news release said. Multiple organizations and businesses have also helped in the fundraising process.
“Our community members and businesses have gotten creative and used their own platforms and resources to bring this asset back to our community,” Jamie Woodruff, Community Development and Recreation Director for the City of Sullivan, said.
In addition to the fundraising efforts, the City of Sullivan was awarded $50,000 this fall from the Wabash Valley Community Foundation’s Sullivan County Affiliate.
As 2022 begins, according to the release, the city will continue its fundraising and grant efforts with the goal of officially opening the new city pool by Summer of 2022.
“It’s been nothing less than inspiring and truly a community effort,” Woodruff said. “For that, we are so thankful. This is what it means to take time to care.”
