Gordon family puts name on future Sumner YMCA

The HERALDDecember 18, 2013 

The future Sumner YMCA was recently named the Gordon Family YMCA, in recognition of the financial support from the Gordon family, longtime owner of Gordon Trucking, Heartland Express of Iowa.

Since 1946, Gordon Trucking has employed nearly 1,000 residents in the greater Sumner area.

"We are humbled to have the Gordon family — who is engrained in the community — give so generously to what will be the community hub of Sumner and serve an expected 22,000 people," said Bob Ecklund, YMCA president and CEO.
