I’m (Debb) part of a group called, 100 Women Who Care Clark County. The goal of the organization is to make a difference by coming together to support the health and growth of our community. We meet quarterly ( once every 90 days) for an hour to hear presentations from three randomly chosen non-profits benefiting the community. We listen to short heart-felt speeches and then take a vote. Once the non-profit is identified, each of the members donates $100.00, for a total of $10,000.
This month, 100 Women Who Care voted to donate our money to Villages Clark County– a plan not a place – independent living with a community of support. This great non-profit relies on like-minded volunteers who help older seniors age comfortably, and safely, in their own homes. Carefully vetted volunteers do everything from changing a light bulb on a ceiling fixture; to driving, grocery shopping, yard work, spring cleaning, home repairs, and companionship.
While the name 100 Women implies there are just 100 members, the group can grow and grow. It’s our hope more women will join in our efforts. Imagine the donation power of 1000 Women Who Care. In my opinion, four hours a year and four-hundred dollars x 100 Women ( or more ) is a powerful way to make a positive impact on our community.
