100 Women Who Care-Chelsea Area Membership is expected to donate over $15,000 to Stockbridge Community Outreach from their Red Carpet Gala Impact Award Meeting on Tuesday, June 6, 2023.
The meeting kicked off with an interactive networking hour, where members and guests mingled with each other while connecting with local sponsors. Following the networking hour, members listened to pitches from three randomly selected charities including Bob-a-Loo, Worth Repeating, and Stockbridge Community Outreach. The charities were asked to make their best case for the Summer Impact Award. Following the presentations from all three charities, members cast their ballots. Stockbridge Community Outreach received the most votes and was the recipient of the evening’s Impact Award.
100 Women Who Care - Chelsea Area Member Mary Tomac nominated Stockbridge Community Outreach for consideration and Gwen Reid, Executive Director for the agency represented the nonprofit at the meeting. The nonprofit's mission is to provide essential support to alleviate the effects of hunger and poverty for those in the Stockbridge area by fostering healthy communities and the economic independence of our residents and demonstrating compassion, respect, and dignity for all.
“We are thrilled to receive this impact award from the amazing group of 100 Women Who Care – Chelsea Area,” said Gwen Reid, Executive Director for Stockbridge Community Outreach. “This donation will support our assistance programs, which makes us excited at the Outreach because we LOVE to take care of our Stockbridge Community."
