The United Way of Youngstown and the Mahoning Valley will soon have a new Volunteer Resource Center.

A groundbreaking ceremony took place Monday morning to celebrate the new center that will continue to provide resources for families in the Valley.

The Centofanti Foundation is donating $1 million to the facility that will be the home to thousands of volunteers.

The United Way also received $1.5 million from Senator Sherrod Brown's Office.

"This is needed. We do a food distribution on the third Saturday of every month," United Way of Youngstown & Mahoning Valley President Bob Hannon said. "We will do it out of this building and be able to pack supplies here. Our office downtown is out of the room. This will help impact the community - we'll have a full-time office person, a warehouse manager, and a volunteer resource center. it's what I believe is the evolution of the United Way, and it will have a greater impact on the Mahoning Valley."

The new facility is expected to open sometime in June on Market Street in Boardman.
