The 100+ Women Who Care of Door County (100+WWC) giving circle met at Egg Harbor’s Kress Pavilion in October to recognize and award grants to Peninsula Preschool, Door County Habitat for Humanity, and the Washington Island Community Health Program. Members listened to presentations about the organizations, then voted to select the honorees.
Ann Morgan, co-founder of Door County’s 100+WWC, hosted the meeting. Member Jennie Bexell was recognized for her contributions to 100+WWC and receiving the Light Keeper Award for Women and Minority Business of the Year.
Door County Habitat for Humanity received the main award of $11,250 for its new Rent-a-Ramp program to keep people with mobility issues in their homes. Peninsula Preschool and the Washington Island Community Health Program each received awards of approximately $5,125.
Other meeting topics included an update from Adopt A Soldier founder Nancy Hutchinson about how its 100+WWC award in 2019 supported local veterans and deployed military personnel.
The nonprofits to be considered for the next quarterly award were randomly drawn from member nominations: the 115 Club; Write On, Door County; and the Sue Baldwin Fund. The 100+WWC members who nominated these nonprofits will give a presentation during the next meeting, set for Jan. 24, and representatives from the nonprofits will be available to answer questions.
