The Story

“Make a Splash for the Pinckneyville Pool” is a capital campaign to raise money for urgently needed repairs to the Jake Bender Municipal Pool. The Foundation for the Future of Pinckneyville is partnering with the city of Pinckneyville to raise $85,000 for repairs that include replacing the original and now leaking plumbing of the 49-year-old facility, purchase new diving boards and a slide, paint the pool’s surface, replace broken fixtures in the showers and much more. Already, the Foundation has agreed to donate $25,000 to the effort with $20,000 of that earmarked for a new slide. That sets the goal of this YouCaring drive at $60,000. You may also make checks payable to Foundation for Pinckneyville and mail to PO Box 213, Pinckneyville, IL  62274. Write "Pool" in the memo line and all donations will go entirely to the pool.

The campaign to raise money for improvements to the Jake Bender Municipal Pool has a logo thanks to Alexis Rice. The PCHS junior volunteered to create it saying it took her a little over a day. She said she applied the skills she learned in her graphics design course at the high school to make it.

Alexis is a member of the Future Business Leaders of America and is heading to the organization’s state competition in March. She qualified for creating a mock family business complete with a logo and store layout. She is also a member of the PCHS Poms that placed fourth in state competition in two categories this year.

“Make a Splash for the Pinckneyville Pool” is a partnership between the city of Pinckneyville and the Foundation for the Future of Pinckneyville to raise money for needed repairs to the 49-year-old facility. Money donated will be used to replace the leaking plumbing, a new water heater, repairs to the roof, replace missing shower tiles, install new shower fixtures and more.

A goal of $85,000 has been set with all of it money dedicated to the project. Those interested can send donations directly to the Foundation for the Future of Pinckneyville, PO Box 213, Pinckneyville, IL 62274; write “Pool” in the memo line.  People can also go to the crowd funding site, YouCaring.com and type in “Pinckneyville Pool” in the search box to give online. All donations are tax deductible.
