Two PQB area charitable organizations have received sizeable donations from 100+ Women Who Care Oceanside.
The Parksville Qualicum Adult Literacy Program and the SD69 Errington Elementary School Meals Program were each given cheques for $16,250, for a total of $32,500.
The two organizations received the most votes at a meeting of the 100+ Women Who Care Oceanside last month.
The members meet four times a year to nominate and vote on worthy charities. Each member writes a cheque to the charity for $100, which translate into $10,000 or more. — NEWS Staff
