Community Developer Leads Action of Giving During COVID
Ron Fain, organizer of The 100 Men Who Care of Northern Arizona, is calling out to members of the philanthropic group to make their individual $100 donations to the Yavapai County Food Bank for the organization’s fourth giving event. 100 Men Who Care is a group of 100+ men who gather quarterly to choose a non-profit in the region. Each man gives $100 to the selected non-profit. To date, over $8,500 per event has been raised and over $25,000 total to date.
“Over the past 9 months the organization has raised over $25,000 and we are not going to allow the COVID crisis halt our progress in giving back. We reached out to a number of individuals and leadership within the community and all of them were telling us the same thing: “Find a local food bank that has been impacted. Many of our non-profits in the region are being crushed by this and the food banks are getting hit hard,” says Fain.
“Since we couldn’t plan a large gathering due to the COVID concerns, a call-to-action to the membership makes sense. This is a great opportunity to continue the work of giving back to the organizations that continue to make a difference in our communities. I am asking all members to send their $100 donation to:
Yavapai County Food Bank
PO Box 4151
Prescott, AZ. 86302
NOTE: Please mark in check memo: “100 Men Who Care”.
