On Oct. 21, members of 100+ Women Who Care of Will County had their “big check” presentation donating $2,800 to Northern Will County Special Recreation Association (NWCSRA).
Cathy Davis, NWCSRA’s executive director, and the NWCSRA family were presented the checks at their annual banquet.
Northern Will County SRA provides year round fun and recreational opportunities for individuals with special needs and abilities. Preschoolers to seniors can enjoy an array of programs from Special Olympics, camps, dance, aquatics, leisure education, adaptive sports, social clubs, and special events to trips.
Programs are designed to appeal to a variety of interests. Services are provided through a cooperative agreement with local park districts.
100+ WWC is a philanthropic group formed for local women who are interested in supporting their communities by contributing to Will County charities together as a group to increase the donation impact.
At each of the quarterly meetings members nominate charities, three are chosen at random, and after a brief presentation, the members vote on which charity to support. Once the winning charity is announced, everyone writes a $100 check, on the spot directly to that charity. Teams of 2 or 4 are welcome to join.
All charities nominated must be located in, and serve, Will County and must have 501(c)(3) non-profit status.
100+ Women Who Care of Will County’s next meeting is 5:30 to 6:30 p.m. Nov. 15at Mullets. All are welcome.
