News from Our November 2017 Meeting

On November 9, 2017, 100 Women Who Care Albany held our quarterly meeting. The room was again filled with generous women, including 10 new members!

During this meeting, Tracie Killiar from last quarter’s recipient, South End Children’s Cafe, gave a heartfelt presentation about how the organization provides a positive impact to children in Albany and how the use of our funds will help them purchase food for the many more meals they will be providing at their new facility.

The three organizations picked to present at this meeting were:
Interfaith Partnership for the Homeless – Empowers individuals and families who are homeless or facing homelessness, giving them the tools to be self-sufficient.
Unity House – Provides a wide range of services to meet the otherwise unmet needs of people in our community who are hurting and struggling.
The RED Bookshelf – dedicated to getting books into children’s homes

Congratulations to Interfaith Partnership who became this recipient of this meeting’s collective giving!

Joseph’s House will be having a ribbon cutting ceremony on Monday November 20, 2017 for their new kitchen and dining area which was funded by our collective giving at our May 2017 meeting. Wonderful to see their vision coming to fruition!

We are always excited to welcome new members as they join the ranks of 100+ caring women making a big difference for Capital District charities. Don’t miss joining us in 2018 at our next meeting on February 8, 2018.
