Lakeshore CAP Food Pantry Awarded at October 2023 100+ WWC Giving Event!

100+Women Who Care Door County (100+WWC) Celebrates 5 Years: $29,000 awarded at October 2023 Giving Event. $490,000 in giving to 56 Door County nonprofits in 22 Giving Events!

100+ Women Who Care Door County (100+WWC) Giving Circle continued its philanthropic impact. Through all seasons, this group of women demonstrates the Giving Circle’s motto of “Do Good, Feel Good, Gather, Have Fun with 100+WWC!” This Giving Circle comprised of 380 givers (individuals and teams) has awarded over $490,000 to 56 Door County nonprofit organizations.

Three nonprofits discussed their organizations and initiatives. Lakeshore CAP Food Pantry was the recipient of the main award of $14,500. Little Eddie Big Cup/Mental Health Support Fund and Sunshine Resources Door County (SRDC) will also each receive approximately $7,250. A total of $29,000 was awarded in one hour!

Sandi Soik, Director, Lakeshore CAP Food Pantry commented, “It was very inspiring to see the enthusiasm the 100+ Women Who Care have for the nonprofits in Door County. Without financial support like 100+WWC, this food pantry would not exist. Thank you for your concern for our friends and neighbors in need.”

Lisa VanLaanen, 100+WWC member/nominator of Lakeshore CAP Food Pantry, is enthusiastic, “100+WWC makes giving an outstanding habit – especially when you can get together with a wonderful group of old and new friends. It’s a fun, friendly, and easy way to contribute and recognize the good works of so many across our county.”

Rachel Willems, President, Little Eddie Big Cup/Mental Health Support Fund shared, “It’s a point of pride to think that what started as grieving friends planning a golf tournament to remember their classmate, has now grown into the nonprofit Mental Health Support Fund. We grew up in a world that didn’t talk about the mental illness around us, we hope the work of the fund helps change that for future generations.”

Jeremy Paszczak, Director of Development, Sunshine Resources of Door County (SRDC), felt comfortable among the 100+WWC members, “This is very exciting that SRDC and two additional worthy causes receive this support in such a wonderful event. Thank you!”

Unity Hospice, represented by Donna Hanson, Marketing Assistant, was the returning award recipient and updated the group on its services and results from the April 2022 100+WWC gift.

The nonprofits to be considered for the next quarterly award were randomly drawn from member nominations. These nonprofit organizations are: Liberty Grove Historical Society, Money Management Counselors, and HELP of Door County. The 100+WWC members that nominated these nonprofits and nonprofit representatives will present a summary of their nonprofit and answer questions at the next 100+WWC Giving Event on January 22, 2024 via LiveStream or in person at the Kress Pavilion, 7845 Church St, Egg Harbor.
