Good morning 100 Women Who Care! If you were unable to make the meeting last night, here is a recap:
- First, Roberta Weliever spoke on behalf of the Clay Co. Cooperative Benevolence Ministry, a nonprofit that uses a strong vetting system to provide the working poor with utility bill assistance, gas vouchers, food vouchers, referral services and budgeting services.
- Second, Renee Stewart spoke on behalf of the Clay Co. Historical Society and after giving a history of the building, she spoke of the needs that the historical society has including funds for the Bicentennial Legacy Park, a sidewalk repair, a roof leak repair, new plaster and paint in three display rooms and a new security system.
- Last, we heard from Pam Fischer from Be Nice Be Kind. Pam spoke of an experience in Forest Park where she was with a group of children and they had to evacuate the park quickly because the SWAT team was entering a home on the edge of the park for drugs. Pam spoke to a SWAT team member later about how bad the drug problem is in Clay County and said that funds from the night would go to aiding organizations that help combat the drug problems in Clay County.
