WWC donor for a day winners awarded grants to local organizations
Members of Women Who Care, 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 each. Debby Bressler awarded her grant to the Johnsonburg Senior Center; Nancy Hoffman awarded a grant to the Senior Junction of Ridgway; Andrea Allegretto awarded to the Helping Hand Food Pantry in Johnsonburg; and Lisa Salter provided funding to the St. Marys Heritage Preservation Group. Women Who Care has given $391,580 to area non-profits since 2010.
Women Who Care brings women from diverse backgrounds together to combine their philanthropic donations and strengthen the Elk County community through the power of collective giving. Close to 280 women make up the membership of Women Who Care. WWC is looking to grow its membership to make an even greater impact in the Elk County area. All area women are encouraged to join WWC. For a minimal donation, you can make a difference for our communities. Find out all about Women Who Care on our website at www.elkcountyfoundation.org.
