Since 2014 $565,100 Raised by 100 Women Who Care Norfolk! What an accomplishment by 100 Women Who Care Norfolk! How did we do it? One hundred dollars ($100) four times per year x 170 members (Membership fluctuates). Who has benefited? 36 Norfolk Charities who service thousands of Norfolk residents.
May 2023 Update: The successful recipient of $17,300 was Who Did It Club (presented by Cathy Rusling). The other 2 charities who were selected to present were Lynnwood Arts Centre (Kim Shippey) and the Alzheimer’s Society (Diane Holmes).
Who Did It Club, formed in 1944, is a Norfolk community service club who loans out medical equipment (free of charge) to anyone who has a short-term need. The service club is made up of volunteers who, among other duties, clean and service the medical equipment before it is loaned out to the next person in need. During the early stages of COVID, the Club provided 18 beds to NGH which were used to set up their “field” hospital. The $17,300 will help fund a planned addition to their facility on Hillcrest Road.
