Women’s group donates nearly $600,000 in 10 years.

MEARS — Having contributed nearly $600,000 to area nonprofits over the past 10 years, the Women Who Care of Oceana County will celebrate their collective generosity when they hold their next quarterly meeting Tuesday, June 7, from 5:30–6:30 p.m. at Golden Sands Golf Course, at 2501 N. Wilson Road.  

The group first met in June of 2012 with 53 members, but quickly tripled in number.  Membership is open to any woman who pledges to make a $100 personal contribution four times a year to a different Oceana-based, 501 (c)(3) organization. One-hour meetings in March, June, September, and December take place at different venues. Members learn about three deserving nonprofit organizations that serve Oceana County.  They then vote to choose one that everyone will support — including those who couldn’t attend the meeting. Dinner and hospitality follows for those who can stay. 

If you’d like to join, or are interested in coming to the meeting as a guest, contact Amy LaBarge at either 313-268-2086, or womenwhocareoc@gmail.com.
