Among the concerns are the center's loss of its 501(c)3 tax-exempt status (it has refiled and is confident it will get it back); loss of county funding; and mounting bills, some due to the harsh winter weather, the Inquirer says.
The 54-year-old pool was damaged by the extreme winter we just had, NBC says, and the cost to fix it is more than the center can currently swing.
Children in Norristown are trying to help any way they can, NBC said, standing on a corner near the pool to collect money to go toward fixes.
The board of the community center has reached out to local and state officials, the Inquirer said.
Help needs to come soon, however, or summer will slip away with no swimming opportunities.
