Fernie charity digs deep for good causes

100 Women Who Care Fernie donated $10,200 to the Elk Valley Suicide Taskforce and the Rocky Mountain Village Auxiliary

100 Women Who Care (100WWC) Fernie have made a big donation to two local community groups, with $5,100 each going to the Elk Valley Suicide Taskforce and the Rocky Mountain Village Auxiliary Society.

Director of the Elk Valley Suicide Task Force, Eveliene Eijsermans thanked 100WWC Fernie for their donation.

“Thank you to 100WWCFernie for their incredible support and for helping move the needle forward on breaking stigmas and helping us expand our reach and our awareness,” she said.

“Suicide affects everyone, especially in a small community like ours. Without the support and assistance from amazing organizations such as 100WWCFernie, our impact wouldn’t be as dynamic, and our force wouldn’t be as strong.”

Members of 100WWC Fernie had gathered virtually to raise the $10,200 on November 5 as part of their final ‘Giving Event’ of 2021.

The local charity is 100 percent volunteer supported, and donates money in ways that can make an immediate, direct and positive impact on the loves of people in the community.

Since it was launched in December 2020, members of 100WWC Fernie have raised $27,600 through three Giving Events, and distributed the funds to seven local organizations. The next giving event is scheduled for May 6 next year.
