Foster children to benefit from 100 Women Who Care
A group of motivated women presented a check for more than $10,000 Wednesday afternoon, March 13, to a nonprofit organization dedicated to supporting children in foster care.
Several members of 100+ Women Who Care East County came together at Gresham Ford, 1999 Powell Blvd., to give $10,500 to Gresham-based Boxes of Love, which partners with local children's hospitals to provide kids entering the foster care system with a box filled with clothing and other basic essentials.
The combined donation allows the members of 100+ Women Who Care to make a real impact within the community, without putting on a time-consuming fundraising event.
The group gathers four times a year for one-hour meetings, where they learn about local charities and each member donates a check for $100 to the organization selected through a popular vote. If you are interested in joining, complete a membership form at www.100womenwho
The next meeting will be Thursday, April 25, at Migration Brewing, 18188 N.E. Wilkes Road. A time has not yet been determined.
