Freeport, IL – The 100 Men Who Care for Stephenson County recently presented a donation in the amount of $3,500 to the Freeport Area Church Cooperative (FACC), the local homeless shelter in Freeport. This was the third donation of the recently formed group. FACC intends to use the funds to help them more efficiently use their space and serve clients who are relocating to more permanent housing.
The next meeting of 100 Men Who Care is Tuesday, February 7th at 6pm at The Rafters Restaurant on Rte. 20 in Lena, IL. The group is open to any man who lives, works, or cares about Stephenson County and who is interested in participating. The only requirement for participating is agreeing to support the chosen charity with a donation of $100 quarterly. The group meets quarterly and the charity to be supported is chosen at each meeting.
“Our focus at 100 Men Who Care for Stephenson County is to do good for the community while having a good time. We have had a number of new members join since our last meeting, which is exciting! The more men we have participate, the greater impact we can make on a selected charity,” said Bill Clow, one of the founding members of 100 Men Who Care for Stephenson County. This group is based on the nation-wide 100 Who Care model. There are scores of chapters throughout the country, including a 100 Women Who Care chapter in Stephenson County. The founders emphasize they follow the model of being able to do some good while having a good time!
