We are writing you to tell you of our decision to cancel the June 9th in-person meeting of 100 Women Who Care—MKE Metro West because of the COVID-19 pandemic.
Protecting the health, safety, and well-being of our members is paramount and serves as the reason for our decision to cancel.
Instead, to fulfill our mission of helping those in our communities who need assistance at this unprecedented time, we are organizing a virtual Big Give event.
As the COVID-19 outbreak suspends normal life for most people through social distancing and, for many, results in the sudden loss of their jobs as businesses close, non-profits in the communities west of Milwaukee that support people in need are more important than ever.
Through the Big Give Drive, you, through 100 Women Who Care—MKE Metro West, can make a big difference in the services these nonprofits will be able to provide to those they serve. Our goal is to support local nonprofits that need our donations now more than ever while being sensitive to the financial challenges of our members.
Instead of randomly selecting nonprofits from members’ nominations and voting on one, as we usually do, our leadership team has identified three local charities that are meeting urgent needs in our communities right now. All three of these are helping those in our area affected by the COVID-19 pandemic and the associated repercussions.
The three chosen charities are:
All three of these nonprofits are helping those in the area affected by the COVID- 19 pandemic and the associated repercussions. We stand behind the great work they are providing. Please join us in helping with much needed relief aid so they can continue to provide support to citizens in our area.
We ask that you give any amount – whatever you can. You can choose to give to one, two, or all of the charities listed. If you are unable to donate at this time, we understand and hope to see you in September as we resume our regular giving.
Our BIG GIVE drive will be collecting donations until June 23. If we have early donations coming in, we will be able to provide funds quickly to the recipients.
You can donate either:
