With today being International Women’s Day, 100 Women Who Care Bancroft say they are eager to get back to fundraising once public health regulations let them.

Co-founder Cheryl Easton says it’s great to bring women together across the fabric of the community to raise money for a good cause. She says the idea came from a colleague in Oshawa who is part of a 100 Men Who Care group. It’s a quick and easy way to create an immediate and lasting impact, with very little planning needed. 100% of the funds go to a local, non-profit of the group’s choice.

The group has raised thousands of dollars for Maggie’s Resource Center and the Bancroft Pregnancy Care Center. Easton says as soon as restrictions can allow 100 women to gather, they will get together to continue fundraising. She also hinted that some ideas are in the works in the meantime.
