Charity of Choice February 2018
We are off to a wonderful start! Our 1st meeting of 2018 100 Women Who Care Ajax | Pickering | Whitby was as success!
A big 100 Women thank you to our venue sponsor Mount Lawn Funeral Home & Cemetery, always going above and beyond to host our members!
Unfortunately Victoria Kehoe from Destress Centre Durham our Charity of Choice for Nov 2017, was unable to join us due to illness. She sent a message to share with the members. “Pass our thanks to group and let them know the donation has been used to help us recruit and train 10 more online responder volunteers who will answer text and chat requests from youth who are struggling with suicidal thoughts. We believe this will ultimately help save lives! We couldn’t be more appreciative.’ Victoria
We heard from three very deserving charities:
· Kate Bird who spoke on behalf of WindReach Farm –nominated by Marlene
· Lisa Chaplin spoke on behalf of Grandview Childrens Centre nominated by Cannell
· Tracy McCannell represented Girls Inc Durham
As always the presentations were insightful and moving, hitting home how great the need is in our community.
All are worthwhile charities, and we would love to give the money to all. However, the members voted, and the WINNING charity is WindReach Farms!
