100 Women Who Care donate $5,400 to YWCA at first meeting

Our first 100 Women Who Care meeting was a huge success.  As of our first meeting, we ended with a total of 54 members. We were able to raise more money in our first meeting than Winnipeg in their third. A huge “thank you” to the women of Thompson for raising $5,400 in just one hour. This is absolutely amazing.

First meeting nominations to receive a donation were the YWCA, the Thompson Humane Society and the Boys & Girls Club of Thompson. The votes were very close. Only one vote separated each of the nominees.

Congratulations to the YWCA for being our very first winner and recipient of the donations of the 100 Women Who Care. 

We presented our first cheque in the amount of $5,400 which will to towards some much-needed upgrades with carpet and flooring issues. This will reduce allergens and bacteria, making the environment a healthier and safer place for the clients who utilize the YWCA's services and support.

Special thanks to all the charities who came out to present to our group.  

We are still welcoming more members into our group and hope to see more at our next meeting June 1. We are certain before the end of 2016 we will reach our goal of 100 Women Who Care in Thompson.
