The 100+ Women Who Care of Door County (100+WWC) giving circle met at the Kress Pavillion in October to recognize and award grants to local nonprofits. Three nonprofits - Peninsula Preschool, DC Habitat for Humanity, and the Washington Island Community Health Program, shared information on their organization.
Door County Habitat for Humanity will receive the Main Award of $11,250 for a new 'Rent A Ramp' program to keep people in need with mobility issues in their homes. Lori Allen, Executive Director, DC Habitat for Humanity affirmed: “Door County Habitat will purchase two portable accessibility ramps that can be used to assist individuals to Age in Place, allowing them to remain in their own homes. We will partner with the Door County Aging Coalition to promote the Ramp Up Door County Initiative.” DeAnn Umland, 100+WWC member and DC Habitat Board President, added “Being a part of 100+ Women allows me to connect with many like-minded people in the Door County non profit community. This diverse group is focused on education while making a difference that we can all feel."
