1100 Women Who Care Midlands SC, at their final meeting of 2020, voted to support The Women’s Shelter in Columbia with a donation of $7,500. Members of 100 Women Who Care Midlands SC presented their checks directly to Kathy Riley, Executive Director. The Women’s Shelter focuses on “a comprehensive ministry specific to homeless women”.
With over 100 current members, 100 Women Who Care Midlands SC formed a chapter in the Midlands at the beginning of 2018 and is continuing to grow their membership. 100 Women Who Care Midlands SC meets once quarterly for one hour and gives all donated monies to local non-profits in the Midlands of SC. Our members come from all walks of life and varying financial backgrounds with a simple desire to make an immediate, direct, and positive impact in our communities.
Members commit to giving one hour of their time each quarter to learn about local non-profits that are nominated by each member. Each member then agrees to support, financially, the local non-profit selected among those nominated and voted on, donating their money directly to the selected non-profit each quarter. The combined giving of each members contribution makes a powerful impact locally. In addition to The Women’s Shelter, the Midlands Chapter donated $6,500 to Harvest Hope, $6,275 to Mission Lexington, and $7,550 to Katrina’s Kids this year as well. Closing out their third year, they have donated a total of $69,325.00 to 12 Midlands Organizations.
100 Women Who Care Midlands SC invites women in the Midlands to become 1 of 100. If interested in learning more, contact Leslie Clark at [email protected]
