100 Women NW Selects Arlington Heights Shelter Inc.
The newly established 100 Women Who Care NW Suburban Chicago chapter kicked off its communal giving with a donation of $7,800 to Shelter, Inc. Shelter, Inc. provides emergency and long-term housing for children in need. They assist with group homes, foster care placement, transitional living, community education, and a Healthy Family Program. For more information, visit their website at https://www.shelter-inc.org.
100 Women Who Care meets four times per year. At each meeting, members nominate local 501(c)(3) charities; three are randomly selected to present their charity to the group at the next gathering, and anonymous voting follows. The selected charity is decided that evening, and each member writes a $100 check directly to the charity. The meeting only lasts one hour, the giving is direct, and the power of pooling the donation money is highly impactful.
The next meeting of 100 Women Who Care NW Suburban Chicago is April 10, 2018, at 6:00 p.m. For more information, visit their website at https://www.100womennwsuburbanchicago.wordpress.com. Time for socializing begins at 6:00, and the meeting starts promptly at 7:00. The gathering is held at Emmett's Brewing Company, 128 W. Main Street in West Dundee. Members will be learning about and select from WINGS Program, Inc., Fellowship Housing Corp., and Samaritan Counseling Center.
