Dennis and Christy Murphy Fund
As a part of Centre Foundation's 40 for 40 Matching Campaign, Dennis and Christy Murphy established the Dennis and Christy Murphy Fund to benefit Strawberry Fields' two programs, Scraps & Skeins and Good Day Cafe. Chris and Dennis wholeheartedly support their mission of offering employment to adults with disabilities and delight in watching the employees blossom and grow when given a chance to work, interact, and contribute. A life-long resident of Centre County, Chris is one of the founding mothers of Scraps & Skeins, and her devotion to its cause, its employees, and yarn room is unwavering. Chris' smile, kindness, and all-things-yarn expertise make her a customer favorite. Dennis came to Centre County in 1976 to begin his Penn State career as an Agricultural Safety Specialist. Saying, "we can't think of a better place to call home," Chris and Dennis love Happy Valley for its scenic beauty, changing seasons, and generous community.
