St. Vincent de Paul Society Donations from 100 Women Who Care--MKE Metro West Increased by 50% by Generous Donor, Bringing Total to almost $13,500

On August 16 2022, three members of 100 Women Who Care--MKE Metro West (Sue Kapke who suggested SVDP, Jane Condon, and Kathy Olsen) delivered our donations of almost $9,000 to two executive of St. Vincent de Paul Society of Milwaukee (Executive Director Deborah Duskey and Director of Philanthropy & Communication Rebecca Surges.)

In mid September, we received notification that our donations were increased by 50% by a very generous donor.

We look forward to learning how these funds were used from Deborah and Rebecca at our November 100WWC-MMW meeting.  Read more below about this wonderful organization below.


St. Vincent de Paul of Milwaukee

st. Vincent de Paul is dedicated to eliminating poverty and hunger throughout the County.  For over 39 years, the STDP Meal Program has provided hot nutritious meals to children and adults throughout the community.  2022 has been a very hard year for families everywhere to get the basic food.  

International History

In 1833, the St. Vincent de Paul Society was founded in Paris. Frederic Ozanam, a 20 year old university student, is considered the principal founder of the Society because of his leadership within a small group of similarly-minded students. Their model of visiting the poor of the Paris slums was adopted widely, reaching Milwaukee in 1849. St. Vincent de Paul "conferences," as the volunteer groupings are called, were established in several Milwaukee Catholic parishes.

Local History

The Society has conferences at 45 locations in Milwaukee County. There are also volunteers of many faiths who prepare and serve food at our meal programs. Some also offer their time and talent as volunteers at SVDP thrift stores.

100+ Women Who Care  MKE Metro West

100+ Women Who Care of Milwaukee Metro West strives to strengthen our communities by providing funds to local charities committed to improving the lives of people in communities west of Milwaukee.


Our mission is to bring together, for one hour every four months, at least 100 women. Each member contributes $100, personally or through a team, to a local charity chosen by members in that one hour that will make a difference in our communities.

Come join us to make a difference while you are having fun!  You not only will be improving the lives of others but will be enriching your own life.

The following date has been booked at O-Donoghue's Irish Pub in Elm Grove for our November 2022 meetings on Novem-ber 8, 2022.

Looking forward to seeing you in November.


Thank you to all who contributed household items for Kathy's House at our last meeting.  Jane Condon and Kathy Olsen delivered the items from our generous donors and were given a tour of their new building.  Below are photos of our delivering the  household items and a couple photos of their marvelous facility. They are extremely grateful for all items given and hope that we all can continue to contribute items in the future.  Items that they have great need for are 

Paper Towels, Toilet Paper, Free & Clear Liquid Laundry Detergent, Disinfectant Spray, and Toilet Bowl Cleaner.  Thank you for any of these items you can provide.


The Mission of 100 WWC-MMW is to bring together, for one hour every four months, at least 100 women who each contribute $100 to a local charity, chosen in that one hour, that will make a significant difference in our communities.  In 2019 we gave three charities $29,200--Kathy's House, Association for the Rights of Citizens with handicaps, and The Women's Center of Waukesha.  In 2020, despite the pandemic, we gave $33,920 to local charities to help our neighbors.  


The total we have contributed since our founding six years ago is over $165,000--contributions that have helped citizens in our communities live better lives.
