Leaders of the 100+ Women Who Care Bancroft Region group say they hope to get more women involved, as they continue to build a legacy.
At their Wednesday meeting, they said the group has now raised more than $40,000 for several charities since forming about four years ago.
One of the leaders, Cheryl Easton, says a next milestone is to see if a $10,000 donation can be achieved from a single meeting. That will take 100 members at the event each donating a $100 for a charity that the group has voted to support. That’s the model which guides such 100 Women groups.
But, Easton says, even without hitting the milestone, the Bancroft group is doing fantastic work. At each meeting, representatives from three charities make appeals for support.
“(The meetings) serve many purposes, not just for the charity that wins,” she says. “It gives those other two charities an opportunity to educate and inform about the work they’re doing in the community. So, everybody wins.”
