100 Good Women News & Updates

Volunteer Needed

Posted by Sarah, 7 November 2014 - 10:40am

Volunteer Needed Immediately: Request Taker and Process Maker - Someone who is full of energy, compassion, realism & idealism (balanced) who has a desire to fix everything in the world. This person must have home/work access to a computer and be able to:

1. Check 100GW email requests and respond a few times per week

2. Make decisions on grocery and gas cards autonomously in most cases (help will be given, if needed, by past request takers).

3. Add in all requests to the Drive spreadsheet and update spreadsheet as requests are filled.

4. Go to Board when necessary for input.

5. Send needs on to Sarah for newsletter and/or Facebook.

6. Coordinate givers and getters if necessary, including text/ call/ email individuals with card pickup (check database to ensure no double-dipping). Gotta get the stuff to them.

7. Keep in contact with Melissa Dimoush at Hedges Insurance, who acts as our card giver and holding tank, regarding when a request is made and when they will be coming and what they need. i.e. a $50 Dillon’s card goes to ______ or ______ will be in to pick up sheets, etc.

8. Refer people to agencies as needed, again with the help of previous request takers if necessary.

9. Attend Board Meetings once a month on a Sunday afternoon. We offer support, fun and lively conversations at our board meetings, which we try desperately to keep to one hour.

10. Check in with the Forum to discuss Board decisions as email notifications come in.

11. Keep a healthy perspective and understand that even though you want to help everyone and save the world, it may not be possible. This is a mind boggling task but the one that our organization is built on. 

Contact info@100goodwomen.org if you are interested or know someone you'd like to recommend. This is not a permanent position. It is only as long as you are able and invested. When you are ready to move on, we will work at finding another volunteer. We can't wait to hear from you.

Thank You Received, and Thank You

Posted by Sarah, 10 March 2014 - 10:06am

Thank You From a Client

Thank Yous are wonderful to receive.  It is even better when it is in a hand-written card mailed the old-fashioned way.  Ahhhhh.  So lovely to know that we have helped and that what we have done has mattered.  Thank yous are few and far between in life, so remember to tell someone thank you today.  

The following is what we received (redacted):
Dear 100 Good Women,
Thank you for your generosity.  Before Christmas my job coach X was able to receive a gift card to Dillon's, through you, so that I could pay for gas money and the application fee for my substitute teaching license.  The holiday was a very stressful time regardless, and being jobless only added to the problem.  I am happily employed now with a great job.  Thank you for your help in making that happen.
Sincerely,
X


So thank you to all of you who help by donating via our website, or by dropping off a grocery card.  These are real people with real lives and real need.  Your help matters.  
Please click >>> for Paypal donations or to renew membership ($10 dues).

We will have reusable fantastic white and grey 100 GW bags for sale at our Clothing Exchange on April 13th!  This will be an exciting and fun event. More details in Flyer.

Dues, If You Can.

Posted by Sarah, 27 February 2014 - 4:39pm

Hello community!  Dues time has come again and we would very much appreciate the payment of the dues if you can swing it.  No pressure, but we are thankful for the money that we use to keep the website going, make flyers, put on the events (Clothing Exchange being one) and more.  You can pay straight to Paypal.   You can even set up a recurring amount if you are so inclined.  

We recently realized that last year we received approximately 10-15% of the dues from members.  If we could inch that a bit higher, it would be trememdous.  But if you cannot donate at this time, don't worry about it.  You do what you can do.  

Thank you!
