WEST CHESTER, PA (January 19, 2016) – The Chester County Fund for Women and Girls is named the 2015 Mosteller Community Service Award winner by the Greater West Chester Chamber of Commerce (GWCC) for its long term commitment to meeting the challenges confronting women and girls and its ongoing dedication to identifying and addressing those needs.
