CHRISTIANSBURG — The local chapter of the 100+ Women Who Care (100+ WWC NRV) has recently donated $11,000 to the member-selected organization, The Montgomery County Emergency Assistance Program (MCEAP).
MCEAP strives to meet the immediate emergency and temporary needs of low-income, unemployed, elderly and disabled individuals and families of Montgomery County and receives funding entirely from private sources. MCEAP provides assistance in the areas of food, clothing, furniture, and financial assistance, filling needs other agencies are unable to meet.
Susan Miller, MCEAP representative and sponsor, expressed gratitude for the contribution. “Many thanks to the 100+ WWC for selecting MCEAP as a recipient of the quarter,” Miller said. “Without your kind consideration, we at MCEAP would not be able to assist and support the needs in Montgomery County.”
While the 100+ Women Who Care’s NRV chapter has continued to meet virtually during the pandemic, the time has come for once again gathering in person. On Tuesday, July 20, the group will hold a hybrid in-person and virtual meeting conducted live at its new location of the Blacksburg Country Club banquet hall with synchronous Zoom option for those members who are not able to attend the meeting in person.
At each 100+ WWC quarterly meeting, three local not-for-profits are drawn from a bucket. Each organization must have a 100+ Women Who Care NRV member sponsor willing to present on its behalf. The group’s membership area includes the counties of Montgomery, Giles, Pulaski, and Floyd and the City of Radford.
The 100+ WWC NRV meets quarterly on the third Tuesday of January, April, July, and October. Committed members donate $100 every quarter, and each meeting lasts no more than one hour.
