100 Women Who Care – North Grenville: Staying Strong

by Cyndy Batchelor

Through the pandemic, our group has stayed strong with an online presence, and continued to give back to local charities in North Grenville. We want to thank all of our current members for sticking with us and continuing to support our local charities.

As we are finishing up our 5th year as caring women in North Grenville, we are now looking for new members to join this wonderful group. Our next meeting will be held on Thursday, November 25, at 7 pm at Catered Affairs – and it will be our first in person since February 2020. Join us at 6:30 pm for a cash bar and light meal.

The 100 Women Who Care model asks registered individuals or teams to commit to a $100 donation each quarter, for a full year. Members nominate local charities for consideration, and three are selected at random. Representatives from those three charities are invited to attend the meeting and make a presentation to the group. Each registered individual or team casts a vote, and by the end of the hour thousands of dollars have been pledged to a worthy local cause.

At our 3rd Quarter meeting held in September, we were able to raise $2,100 for Connect Youth – a local group celebrating 20 years of serving youth in Leeds & Grenville. They will use the funds towards providing safe temporary housing for displaced youth.

We also received presentations from Victoria’s Quilt’s Kemptville and Habitat for Humanity Kemptville – and each will receive $250.

Nominations for the next meeting are now open to members.

Joining 100 Women Who Care is a very simple way to see directly how your charitable donation is put to work in your own local community.
