At their recent meeting, the philanthropic organization, 100+ Women Who Care Greater Durand Area, considered three local non-profit groups for a donation. The women voted to award their donation to the Durand Backpack Program. With 100% participation, the program will receive $9,500 from the group. Also considered were I Cancer Vive and Live Healthy Shiawassee.
This is the fourth meeting of the group, where each member commits to a $100 donation to the local non-profit with the majority vote. With full member participation of a 100 member group, that's $10,000 to the selected organization. The Durand group, 95 women strong, has room for a few more members. In fact, Kathy Wilson of 100+ Women told Uplift Shiawassee that they'd love to see the group grow well beyond 100 participants.
