The Lake Country chapter of 100 Women Who Care recently presented its quarterly donation of $10,000 to the Dave Thillen Education Foundation. The Thillen Foundation partners with the Greene County College and Career Academy (GCCA) in pursuit of a shared goal of ending generational poverty in Greene County.
GCCA prepares students for college admission or provides career training for direct entry into the workforce or military service. The career coaching program involves 130 volunteer career coaches who commit to work with 450 enrolled students over four years. It also offers students an opportunity to earn financial assistance following graduation as they move on to college, careers or the military.
100 Women Who Care is a nationwide organization in which each chapter meets quarterly to nominate, vote upon, and support local nonprofits with $100 individual member contributions each time, resulting in donations up to $10,000 or more based on membership rolls.
The Lake Country chapter of 100 Women Who Care focuses on nonprofit organizations based in Greene and Putnam Counties. Prior to the Thillen Foundation, past recipients of local 100 Women Who Care donations include Ferst Readers, Putnam County Christian Learning Center, Greene County Habitat for Humanity and The Plaza Arts Center, among several others. The Lake Country 100 Women Who Care group meets to determine its next recipient Oct. 18, from 5:30-7 p.m. at the nondenominational Lake Oconee Church (1101 Village Park Dr, Greensboro).
