100 Women Who Care Rural Wellington donates $9,000 to youth hubs

WELLINGTON COUNTY – The local Integrated Youth Services Network (IYSN) will be the latest recipient of funding from 100 Women Who Care Rural Wellington.

IYSN was selected by the group when it gathered virtually for its December meeting.

The network operates a number of hubs in Wellington County to assist youth to efficiently navigate issues pertaining to physical and mental health care, employment and education.

Over 30 organizations have come together in this shared vision.

“Our membership has given this important effort on behalf of the Wellington County youth a huge boost with our donation of $9,000,” officials state.

“We are proud of our members and extend an invitation to any women in rural or small town Wellington who want to join our effort to ‘give where we live.’”

The group meets four times a year and each member donates $100 per meeting for a total annual donation of $400. Members are also able to nominate a registered local charity to receive the donation at each meeting.

“It is such a simple way to make a huge impact in our communities,” organizers note.

The next 100 Women Who Care Rural Wellington meeting will be held in March.  Local women are encouraged to join and help to “make a difference.”
