100 Women Peterborough Raises $10,200 In Under One Hour For Brock Mission Cameron House

At their first meeting of the year on March 19th, the 100 Women Peterborough group raised more than $10,200 in under one hour for Brock Mission Cameron House.

Brock Mission Cameron House, which has been open since the fall of 1996, is a short-term, emergency shelter for women with 12 beds. They have since added eight bachelor units to the site allowing for women to pay a modest rent and customize the program to suit the individual’s needs. The Life Skills program provides education and training for independent living in the future.

The contribution from 100 Women Peterborough will help to fund a new laundry room as well as much needed upgrades to their current facilities.

"What an incredible experience to see 100 Women Peterborough at work,” says Bill McNabb, Executive Director of Brock Mission. “We are encouraged, inspired and grateful for their generous support in getting some much needed repairs and improvements for our shelter facility.”

Brock Mission provides crisis shelter, food, clothing and support to those in the Peterborough community who find themselves in need. They also provide links with existing community services.

HOW 100 WOMEN WORKS

100 Women members commit to donate $100 at each of the four events hosted throughout the year. The aim is to help women learn about the multitude of different causes in the community, help people in need, and join other like-minded women to empower and multiply the impact of their contributions.

One hundred percent of the funds raised by the membership will be donated to four non-profit organizations determined by the membership throughout the year.

Women that are interested in joining the group—it has quickly grown due to word of mouth—are encouraged to reach out via the website here.
