In 2020 the Covid pandemic changed our lives. As a community group, we were not able to meet in person and this gave us pause. Much of our excitement and drive comes from the incredible energy of a room full of women looking to make a change in their community. At first we were concerned about peoples ability to participate because of possible income shortfalls. As with all of you, we have taken time to adjust to our altered work and family commitments. But, charities are still in need, the people they service are still in need, so we must press on! We did hold our first virtual event in Nov 2020 that yielded $7500 for the Orangeville Food Bank.
We have proposed that 2021 will have two virtual events to carry on our donation circle of giving to Dufferin area charities. As with the last event, we are forgoing the $100 membership commitment and we encourage you to give what you can. Donations can be for $25, $50, $75 or $100.
Stay tuned for details and dates. Charity nominations will open April 27/21.
