100 Women Strong schedules annual meeting

100 Women Strong will hold its annual meeting from 5 to 7 p.m. Thursday Mar. 17, at The Livery Microbrewery, which is located at 190 5th St., in Benton Harbor.

The non-profit organization’s board chairperson Sarah Spoonholtz said the meeting, which is open to the public, will include an update on the organization, an opportunity to meet with board members and the chance to learn about ways to volunteer with the organization.

The cost for the event is $10 at the door and includes light snacks.

A cash bar will be available. Fifty cents from every pint sold during the night of the meeting will go toward 100 Women Strong, which has been providing emergency funds for Berrien County women for more than 15 years.

Women who benefit from the program are not eligible for other community resources. They are either working or attending school and can receive a one-time grant up to $500 to pay for emergency car repairs, health, utility or other unexpected bills.

100 Women Strong’s intent is to help women stay self-sufficient and keep them from quitting work or school because no emergency funds were available to them in a time of need.
