Community Event
100 Women Who Care
Members make presentations for causes they support. A vote selects the local non-profit to receive the donation. Each woman writes a $100 check to the charity and together the group makes a huge impact on a local charity helping flood victims, people who are homeless or food insecure. The $4600 donation from the May quarterly meeting went to a grass-roots non-profit, The Mommy Shoppe. This organization collects new and gently used maternity, baby and children's clothing and distributes it for free or very low cost to families in need. They operate out of the basement of the Houserville Methodist Church. Many worthwhile community charities have been beneficiaries since 2012; Faith Centre, State College Community Land Trust, Hearts for Homeless, Youth Service Bureau, the flood relief fund for the area surrounding Milesburg and so on.
