Peery said she was happy with the campaign progress so far, since the goal was $15 million in three years and the YWCA is within reach of that amount in half that time.

“If I have to take a loan myself, we'll get there one way or another,” Peery said about the final push for $200,000 before Oct. 9 in order to receive the Mabee grant.

David Hudiburg, who serves on the executive committee for the campaign, said he is involved with the campaign because of Peery's efforts and the help the YWCA offers to abused women.

“The YWCA tries to ... help them get back on their feet, get out of that abusive relationship,” he said. “The people of Oklahoma have really stepped up” in the campaign.
