November 25, 2014 Meeting
Ninety-two women came together at a beautifully Christmas decorated Kingswood Lodge on November 25th, 2014. It was very inspiring to be in a room where exactly one year earlier we gave over $16,000 to create a brown bag lunch program at local schools. We were down to a skeleton of volunteers as there was another event for women in town, which involved our volunteers and ran into other glitches, but the true spirit of 100 WomenWhoCare is ALWAYS in the room! Each woman ready to learn about the charities, ready to be inspired, and ready to give back to their community.
The three charities that presented were: The Fredericton Food Bank (developing their class 4 kitchen with cooking classes for young and old), Partners for Youth (funding their Making Waves program for the youth and taught by youth to empower and decrease violence) and Fredericton Sexual Assualt Crisis Centre. (help fund their one-on-one counceling to victems and survivors of sexual assault, along with the numerous crisis intervention programs not just in our city, but as well across New Brunswick.
It was our closest vote ever!!! Only 3 votes seperated the three charities; the women chose to support Partners for youth with $9200 with more cheques still rolling in.
Thank you 100WomenWhoCare-Fredericton!
