On June 14th, the 100 Women Who Care in Clay County met at the Brazil Elks for the 2nd quarter meeting, here is a recap:
- The first presentation was by member Laura Boyce on behalf of the Clay County Cooperative Benevolence Ministry whose goal is to help relieve suffering in Clay County, they do so by trying to help working poor families by providing financial support, budgeting support or other support services.
- The second presentation was by member Marian Harrison on behalf of the Clay County Emergency Food Pantry who provides food to Clay County residents based on income guidelines, participants are eligible to receive food once every 30 days and last year the pantry gave away an astonishing 15,000 lbs of food.
- The third presentation was by member Brenda Weber for the Catholic Charities Christmas Store. Catholic Charities is looking for funds for overhead expenses for the Christmas store which helped 75 families at Christmas in Clay County last year.
After some deliberation, the membership voted to fund…the Clay County Emergency Food Pantry!
