Local News100 People Who Care Brant donates over $21,000 to local charities

100 People Who Care Brant (100PWCB) donated a total of $21,770  to three local organizations over the past year, thanks to its generous members.

100 People Who Care Brant has made a positive impact, and tangible difference by supporting these essential programs and initiatives that address critical needs in our community. 

In its first giving cycle, 100 People Who Care Brant contributed $7,615 to Crossing All Bridges Learning Centre. The Centre provides dynamic programs and opportunities designed to maximize potential for adult individuals living with developmental challenges. This generous donation played a vital role in the completion of a state-of-the-art Sensory Room, as well as renovations to the centre’s kitchen, where participants learn cooking skills, safe food handling guidelines and proper use of kitchen equipment.

During the group’s second giving cycle, Kids Can Fly received $6,935 from 100 People Who Care Brant members.  This donation funded the enrollment of 152 local children in the Dolly Parton “Imagination Library Program” for an entire year.  Children in this program receive a free book every month from birth to the age of five, promoting early literacy for kids. Since the program began in 2010, Kids Can Fly Brantford/Brant has mailed over 250,000 books, and over 4,000 children have already graduated.

And in its final giving cycle of the year, 100 People Who Care Brant donated $7,320 to the Brantford Blessing Centre.  This contribution directly supported the Centre’s mission of providing nutritious meals every night to anyone seeking a welcoming and safe place.  For more than 30 years, the Brantford Blessing Centre has provided an active community outreach and interdenominational ministry of providing food and basic necessities to community residents in need of assistance. 

The collective impact of these donations goes beyond monetary value, creating positive and lasting changes in the lives of those served by Crossing All Bridges Learning Centre, Kids Can Fly and the Brantford Blessing Centre.

100 People Who Care Brant is a group of compassionate individuals committed to making a positive impact through collective giving. Through three giving cycles each year, the group is able to contribute to worthy causes in the community based on a nomination and voting process. Since its inception in 2021, 100 People Who Care Brant has supported 9 local charities with donations totaling over $70,000. All communication and business is conducted virtually – no meetings to attend!
