Inspired by his “great memories,” a former camper and counselor with the Mercer Catholic Youth Organization in Yardville has donated $10,000.

Mitchell Hennessey enjoyed 13 summers attending the CYO’s Yardville Camp, along with his sister, Holly. Both went on to work for the organization, Hennessey as camp counselor.

“Mitchell speaks passionately about all the great memories he has of the CYO camp,” said Tom Mladenetz, CYO executive director. “As a young, successful businessman, Mr. Hennessey recognizes the importance of giving back. The CYO is truly grateful for his generosity.”

The donation has been earmarked toward the ongoing fundraising efforts for the recently completed new pool house construction.
