Members of Women Who Care (WWC), a project of the Elk County Community Foundation, have the opportunity to qualify each year for the chance to award a special Donor-for-a-Day grant to a nonprofit organization of their choice.

Four lucky members were able to award $250 to a favorite organization during the WWC holiday membership drive. Nancy Hoffman awarded a grant to the Senior Junction of Ridgway; Lisa Salter provided funding to the St. Marys Heritage Preservation Group; Debby Bressler awarded her grant to the Johnsonburg Senior Center; and Andrea Allegretto awarded to the Helping Hand Food Pantry in Johnsonburg. Women Who Care has given $391,580 to area non-profits since 2010.
