Marshall, IL -(Effingham Radio)- On October 26, 2018 the group 100 Women Who Care Marshall, Illinois meet. 100 Women Who Care is a group that of women who care deeply about their community. A 100 WWC group gathers 4 times a year for a one-hour meeting and each member writes a $100 check to the charity that the group selects. This combined donation makes a real impact, without time consuming fundraising events and planning. The mission and hope of 100 WWC is to provide for those in greatest need in the local community.
This quarters winner was the Marshall Optimist Club shoe project. Each year the Optimist Club donates shoes for over 220 students, third thru sixth grade in Marshall and Martinsville schools. It costs an average of $3,000 to $3,200 a year to put this program on.
If you would like to send a donation to the Marshall Optimist Club you can send a check to: Marshall Optimist Club c/o Donna Barth, 15756 N. Oak Crest Rd, Marshall, IL 62441.
To join 100 WWC, attend the next meeting January 23, 2018 at 7pm at a location to be determined. You can join individually or create a team of no more than 4. The team option was created just for Marshall, so that everyone can be included in making an impact. The team can only nominate 1 organization, have 1 vote and write 1 check. The goal is to have 100 membership forms! Hope to see you at the next meeting!
100 WWC has met a total of 14 times since its first meeting in May of 2015 and made a local impact of over $47,000 to local organizations.
