What a great May 9, 2019 meeting to start off our 4th year!
Jackie Brillings, a 100WWC member and board member for St. Anne’s Foundation shared how our donation of $17100 has already given five girls their own “Birthday Party”. She created a display with photos and also samples of the birthday cards they had printed with our 100 Women Who Care Albany logo. Our funds are bringing so much joy to these young women – many having their first birthday party!
Three wonderful organizations where nominated at our meeting:
- SongwritingWith:Soldiers – They use songwriting as a catalyst for positive change. They offer veterans a unique way to tell their stories, rebuild trust, release pain, and forge new bonds
- Empire State Youth Orchestra – ESYO “CHIME” provides young musicians from economically disadvantaged communities comprehensive support at both elementary and middle school levels.
- Koinonia Primary Care, Inc – Koinonia is a NCQA certified Level 111 Patient Centered Medical Home that provides compassionate, thorough care coordination and management for all in need of health care, with a focus on low-income residents and the underserved in their community.
Congratulation to our May recipient, Koinonia Primary Care, Inc. Our funds will supply much needed blood testing equipment and improving handicap access to their office.
We are happy to welcome six new members! We look forward to seeing everyone at our next meeting on August 8, 2019.
