On October 14, our members voted to award this meeting’s member donations checks to Senior Dreams Come True.
Senior Dreams Come True benefits low-income seniors on Long Island by granting wishes – from helping a senior meet basic needs to fulfilling a lifelong dream. Senior Dreams Come True is proud to have granted such wishes as:
• Funding transportation to bring families together
• Home improvements and repairs
• Home modifications such as wheelchair accessibility and chair lifts
• Assistance with medical expenses such as much needed dental work
Many Long Island seniors with limited income are finding that life is more of a challenge when even a simple need or wish, which most of us take for granted, cannot be fulfilled.
Charter member, Melissa Negrin-Wiener shared her thoughts on why this charity needed to receive our donation:
"Senior Dreams Come True is so grateful to be in receipt of this generous donation. We are thrilled that we will be able to help so many more Long Island seniors in need. We would like to thank the members of 100 Women Who Care About Long Island for seeing what a huge need there is to assist seniors on a local level."
Do hope you will be able to attend our January 13, 2015 meeting to learn how this charity helped a local senior.
Our next meeting is
(on Route 110 at the LIE in Rubie Corporate Plaza)
After the meeting we invite you to join us for socializing and networking. There will be complimentary hors d'oeuvres and a cash bar.
There is no charge to attend.
100 Women Who Care about Long Island is a philanthropic group formed for local women who are interested in supporting our communities by contributing to Long Island charities together as a group to increase the donation impact.
All of our members/teams make a pledge to 100 Women Who Care about Long Island to make an annual donation of $400. This equates to their writing a $100 check made payable to the winning charity, even if they are not in attendance, at each of our quarterly meetings.
As individuals it is difficult to make a very large impact, but as a group we have the ability to contribute to the growth of our communities in ways that we never before thought possible. The size of our quarterly donations is limited only by the members we have!
