James B Greene Vision Project

A memorial fund has been established in the name of the late community leader and volunteer Jim Greene to fulfill his dream of furthering the Y’s mission by building a YMCA in western Mahoning County.

The goal of this effort is to raise $1,000,000 that would fund the construction of the James B Greene Aquatic Center in the planned Meander Creek YMCA in Austintown.

This project all began by one of Jim’s dearest friends making a single gift of over $200,000… we are inviting you to please help him fulfill Jim’s vision by making a generous gift of your own.
