100 Women Who Care – Midlands SC Donates Almost $4000 to Suicide Prevention

Columbia, SC – The members of newly the newly- formed organization, 100 Women Who Care - Midlands SC, voted at their 2nd quarterly meeting to make the donation to the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention – SC Chapter (AFSP) in the amount of $3,900. Members of 100 Women Who Care - Midlands SC presented their checks directly to the AFSP Board.

With over 50 current members, 100 Women Who Care - Midlands SC formed a chapter in the Midlands at the beginning of 2018. The members meet four times annually and vote to provide donations to one specific Midlands-based non-profit at each meeting. Our members come from all walks of life and varying financial backgrounds with a simple desire to make an immediate, direct, and positive impact in our communities.

Members commit to giving one hour of their time each quarter to learn about local non-profits that are nominated by members. Each member then agrees to support, financially, the local non-profit selected among those nominated and voted on, writing their checks directly to the selected non-profit each quarter. The combined giving of each member’s contribution makes a powerful impact locally. This quarter, 100 Women Who Care Midlands SC was excited to support Serve and Connect with their first donation and look forward to sharing their donations with other local non-profits throughout the year.

100 Women Who Care Midlands SC invites women in the Midlands to become 1 of 100 by contacting Leslie Clark at 100wwcmidlandssc@gmail.com.
