The Westfield YMCA pushed the United Fund of Westfield to 100 percent of the 1996-1997 campaign goal of $585,000.

"We feel that service to the community is everyone's responsibility. We are proud that we are able to help support the work of the fund," stated Stephen Murphy, Westfield's YMCA President.

Mr. Murphy continued, "We believe the United Fund has the best developed agency review and fund distribution system, and is the best way to give help where it is needed in our community. Our gift expresses our confidence in the United Fund's value to all Westfielders."

Accepting the contribution on behalf of the 21 member agency was Susan Pepper, Campaign Chairwoman. She stated, "A gift to the United Fund does more for more people than any single gift you can give."

Linda Maggio, United Fund Executive Director added, "I am always amazed at the continuing generosity of Westfielders - our sign says it all - "Thanks Westfielders", you made it happen".
