EVANSVILLE, IN (WFIE) - A generous donation will go toward building a new shelter house at Lorraine Park.
The Evansville Parks Foundation says it received $25,000 from the Thomas A. and Sharon K. Ruder Foundation.
Thomas Ruder grew up in the Lorraine Park neighborhood and says he wanted to give back to his community.
Ruder says the pool was installed in the park when he was 12-years-old. That pool is where he learned to swim and became his oasis when he was a kid.
