With just barely two-years since it began, 100-plus Women Who Care Northern Door County has provided $82,000 to local charities and grown substantially. The Northern Door chapter of the worldwide organization started with just two organizers and now boasts 285 members. They pool their donations, nominate groups they'd like to help and select the final recipients. The latest recipients included Door Tran. Northern Door co-founder Ann Morgan says their $10,000 donation was given at just the right time.
Co-found Peggy Reineck believes 100-plus Women Who Care is attracting more interest because of the group's ability to pool resources and make a bigger difference.
Reineck and Morgan say those who join 100-plus Women Who Care become aware of local charities that were unknown to some members. Some have now become enthusiastic supporters of those charities.
