The Westfield YMCA has kicked-off their 2016 campaign to raise funds for the Annual Support Campaign. Each year the Y provides direct financial assistance to members of the local community that are unable to afford childcare or summer camp programs. Last year the Y provided over $400,000 in scholarships to help more than 250 local families that were in need due to unemployment or illness. All scholarships only go to the truly needy in our community and are provided through a confidential application process.
I have been a Westfield resident for the last fifteen years, and it is hard to believe that our town has that many families unable to afford daycare for their children or provide a summer camp experience like many of their peers at our local schools.
As a member of the Board of Directors at the Westfield Y, I support the scholarship campaign each year. I ask that you join me this year in making a donation to the Annual Support Campaign to help our fellow Westfield residents benefit from the many programs offered by the Westfield Y. Remember that when you give to the Y, your gift has a meaningful, enduring impact right here in our community since 100% of your contribution stays in Westfield.
Please feel free to contact me at JWalker762@aol.com if you have any questions about the Westfield YMCA or the 2016 campaign. Thanks for your support.
