HART — Women Who Care (WWC) met earlier this month and discussed three important causes serving the community. The group chose to have each of its 150 members make a $100 personal contribution to the Oceana Hispanic Center in Hart.

The center was formed in 2003 to promote the economic and cultural wellbeing of all county residents, with its primary focus on empowering those of Hispanic origin, and facilitating positive interactions between all area residents.

“Our WWC members recognize the very important contributions that the Hispanic community provides to Oceana County, and the considerable challenges they face in their everyday lives,” said WWC member Tammy Carey. “They are our friends, neighbors, family, workplace peers — and nearly half of the students in the county.”

This latest round of quarterly contributions by WWC members to an area nonprofit serving the community totals $15,000, and brings the total amount of their financial gifts to $220,000 since Oceana Women Who Care formed in June of 2012.

Membership is open to any woman who pledges to make four $100 personal contributions each year. They do it by joining with other community-minded women who likewise want to give more clout to their philanthropy.

The next one-hour meeting is scheduled for Tuesday, June 6, at 5:30 p.m., at a location yet to be announced. For more information, check out Facebook.com/oceanawomenwhocare or call Amy LaBarge at 313-268-2086.
