100+ People for Perry held their ninth meeting on Monday, May 21.
Project summaries were provided by previous recipients the Perry High School Research and Design program and Perry Alano Club.
Following presentations of three projects submitted for consideration, the members selected the Nudgers as this quarter’s recipient. The Nudgers will receive $7,000 when all member contributions are received.
100+ People for Perry’s mission is to invest in Perry’s future through supporting current charities, non-profits, worthy projects which advance the quality of life. After 10 initial meetings, the group has contributed $66,000 to nine local projects.
The goal of 100+ People for Perry is to make four large donations each year, which will impact our community. Each contribution is to stay 100 percent in the community; no national charities will be considered. Each charity, non-profit, worthy cause must be a 501 (c)(3) or sponsored by a 501 (c)(3), be project based and benefit the Perry community.
The next 100+ People for Perry meeting will be held at 7 p.m. on Monday, Aug. 27, with social time at 6:30 p.m., at La Poste, 1219 Warford Street in Perry.
Please extend invitations to other community members to attend and also please seek projects to be presented. Forward any projects that you wish to present.
