At our inaugural meeting on May 29, 2013, our members chose Choices for Youth as the recipient of our first group donation!
Choices for Youth is a Community based, not for profit organization that provides youth with a range of supportive housing options, access to a variety of services that promote healthy personal development, and a sense of belonging within an environment of respect, tolerance, peace, and equality.
On June 18th, 100 Women Who Care St. John’s presented Choices for Youth a total of $8200! A representative from the organization came to our next meeting on August 19th to tell us about the impact of our donation and how it will be used.
