Feed and Clothe My People (FMP) of Sturgeon Bay received the 100+ Women Who Care of Northern Door County’s (100WWC) main award during its January quarterly meeting. 100WWC member Ann DeVillers nominated the nonprofit. Carol Krueger, of the FMP board of directors and the coordinator of its Backpack Buddies Program; and Nancy Skadden, secretary of the FMP board of directors, represented FMP to gratefully accept the $10,000 check.
FMP is a charitable nonprofit that provides food and clothing to county residents in need. It began in 1982 to assist local residents who were in emergency situations. The Backpack Buddies Program serves 275 children who receive a weekly lunch bag during the school year. The $10,000 will be used to improve the building’s thrift shop space.
The runners-up at the 100WWC January meeting – Altrusa of DC and the NWTC Educational Foundation – split the remaining estimated $8,000.
The 100WWC’s next quarterly meeting will be held April 27 at the Kress Pavilion in Egg Harbor. It will begin with registration and a social at 5:30 pm; the meeting will start at 6:30 pm.
