100+ Women Who Care local chapter to meet
THOMASTON – One Community Many Voices, a 501 (c)(3) charity, invites women from Knox County to attend its first 100+ OCMV Women Who Care About Knox County chapter meeting. The meeting will be held Wednesday, Feb. 28, with networking and registration from 5:45 p.m. to 6:30 p.m., followed by the meeting from 6:30 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. The meeting will be held in the conference room at the Hampton Inn & Suites, Rockland/Thomaston, Route 1.
The purpose of the group is to bring together 100 – or more – local women from all walks of life, with limited time, who are interested in financially contributing to Knox County charities together in order to have a greater impact. This newly-formed chapter, is one of more than 350 chapters of 100+ Women Who Care groups located worldwide that focuses on coordinating funding for local charitable organizations. The group provides an opportunity for women to contribute $50 – through individual or pooled memberships – four times a year in order to give more than $20,000 directly to local charities.
"This type of giving is based upon a national model that offers women with limited time and funds a means to support local charities in their communities, and be a part of a larger group of women making a direct local impact," said Audrey Lovering of One Community Many Voices.
Members gather at quarterly meetings for 60 minutes to hear three short presentations about local charities. At the end of the meeting, each individual or pooled membership writes a check for $50 directly to the charity that receives the most votes to receive the donation. Local chapter meetings are held the fourth Wednesday of the month in February, May, August and November at the Hampton Inn. Networking and registration occurs from 5:45 p.m. to 6:30 p.m. at each meeting and includes appetizers and drinks, followed by the meeting from 6:30 to 7:30 p.m. Meetings include a welcome address, presentations, voting and charity selection.
