100 + People Who Care to Meet October 23
100 + People Who Care – Grinnell will meet Tuesday, October 23, at 5:30 p.m. The meeting will be held in the Bartelt Conference and Education Center at Grinnell Mutual Reinsurance Company, 4215 Highway 146 South, Grinnell. Those attending should park in the south parking lots of the facility and enter through the south door on the west side of the building.
An exciting part of this meeting will be celebrating the milestone of 100 + members of the organization. Membership currently stands at 103, which means the charity receiving the organization’s support in October will receive at least $ 10,300 in new funding!
100 + People Who Care – Grinnell began in January, 2017, with the very simple premise that members can make a significant contribution to their community as they pool their resources. Each member is asked to contribute $ 100, four times each year, to a charitable purpose selected by a membership vote. At each meeting, the members listen to three nominating presentations, ask questions, and then vote. They then write their checks directly to the “winning” entity. Membership has grown continuously, from 32 in January of 2017 to the current number of 103.
In addition to the membership celebration, 100 + People Who Care – Grinnell will hear a stewardship report from PALS, the beneficiary organization at the July meeting. A PALS representative will inform the members about the use of the $ 10,300 dollars received for their building remodeling project. Members will also hear three nominating presentations, and will vote for the October beneficiary.
Membership certainly remains open, as the “plus” objective continues to grow!
