A local charity that helps cancer patients and their families got a big financial boost from some caring women. Members of 100 Women Who Care of Northern Door County, a giving circle with nationwide chapters, selected Door CANcer, Incorporated for a $14,000 donation. 100 Women Who Care members donate $25 per individual or $100 per four-person teams each quarter and nominate charity recipients. Barbara Herdina, President of Door CANsays the money will meet her organization's needs for a month.
100 Women Who Care of Northern Door County co-founders Peggy Reinecke and Ann Morgan say that helps fulfill the group's mission.
100 Women Who Care's previous quarterly donations were in the $7,000 range. They've increased their giving because the group just keeps on growing and is always looking for new members.
