The Women Who Care (WWC) Steering Committee had a Donor Advisor for a Day “membership drive” for the 2015-16 membership year, that allowed members who registered early to give a grant to a charity of their choice. One new and one renewing member, along with another renewing member who increased their membership level were chosen to give out $500 grants. The Ridgway Little League, Wilcox Volunteer Fire Department and the Johnsonburg Community Center were the grateful recipi…ent of this grants from WWC members Cindy Straub, Rebecca Plowely and Carol Parana, respectively. All of the organization expressed their appreciation for the members choosing their organization for this grant.
