Many families and senior citizens in the Westfield area were able to enjoy this holiday season due to the generosity of local people, organizations and businesses. Members of the Westfield Union Relief Association requested donations from the community and were amazed at the kindness shown by people this year. Union Relief's mission is "to afford aid and relief to those in need in the community." Area families in need and seniors were provided with clothing, toys, life's necessities, and food contributed by various individuals and groups. We were able to serve over 70 families and numerous senior citizens this holiday season due to the big heartedness of the following people, organizations and businesses: Carriage House in Fredonia; Welch's; Cliffstar; Innerlakes Federal Credit Union; Jamestown Area Community Federal Credit Union; Girl Scouts of Westfield; YWCA in Westfield; Kiwanis; Westfield-Mayville Rotary; Westfield First Presbyterian Church; St. Peter's Episcopal Church of Westfield; St. Dominic Roman Catholic Church of Westfield; First United Methodist Church of Westfield; Westfield Teachers; Lakeview Correctional Facility; Senior Citizens Group; Appleseed Christian Preschool; Sherman School; Dollar General; Brocton Girl Scout Troop; Westfield YWCA Board; Westfield School Dietary Dept.; Fairpoint Communication; Key Bank; HSBC Bank; Westfield Family Physicians; Westfield Hospital Employees; Family Dollar; Friday Lunch Ladies; Larry's Cantina; American Legion; North East Foods-Better Baked; WACSO; Saraf's; Loyal Order of Moose No. 118; Son's of American Legion; Women of the Moose; Village Veterinary Clinic; Monday Night Club; Rural Ministries; Elizabeth Ann Seton; Salvation Army; Donna Franklin; Beverly Gilmore; Jennifer Harp; Carol Soudan; Karen Williams; Marcia Wethli; Lisa Albanesius; Beth Cluchey; Avery Jones; Cecelia Filikowski; Lori Horn; Janet Greene and Friends; Ann Fago; Kathy Probst; Mary and Albert Sam; LeAnn Childs; Mary Ellen Ross; Jennifer and Blair Koss; Pete and Carol Best; Peg Ransom; Les and Marilyn Fenton; Evelyn Quagliano; Jane Southerland; and Norm and Mary Shopland.
