100+ Women Who Care recently held their quarterly meeting at The Arc's Education Center. The premise of this group is to gather 100+ women (or less) for four meetings per year. At each meeting, members are asked to 'nominate' a local non-profit. Those nominees are then placed into a 'hat' and two to three names are drawn. From those names selected, the person who nominated that organization (or a representative) is asked to speak to the group for 5 minutes about the nominated organization. The group then votes as to who will receive a charitable contribution from the members of the group. Each member gives $100.00 to that charity.
The last meeting was held on February 7th and the group voted to make their contribution to The Arc Nature Coast! The 10 people in attendance each contributed $100.00,so a total of $1,000.00 will go towards our new Neff Lake Life Skills Center. Thank you to everyone who participated.
The next Florida Nature Coast Chapter Meeting will be held on Thursday, Thursday, May 11 from 7:00 to 8:00 p.m. (social time starts at 6:00). Meeting at The Arc Nature Coast Education Center located at 6495 Mariner Blvd., Spring Hill (the entrance on Partridge Street). All women are invited to join this philanthropic group supporting non-profit organizations serving our local communities. Together we can make a difference and improve lives! You can contact us at email@example.com or by phone (Mary Crouse 352-573-8561 or Vicki Zinn 727-512-4398). Please join us and bring a friend!

Publix Appreciation Day
We are so appreciative of the support we receive from Publix, their employees and Publix Supermarket Charities that we couldn't wait for February to come so that we could visit as many stores as possible to show them how much we love them! February 24th was officially Publix Appreciation Day, so we made posters, cards and other goodies to take to our local Publix stores. We visited over 17 stores in Hernando and Pasco Counties! Thank you so much, Publix!
Publix Day of Service Project
at Dade City Life Skills Development East
Recently, several employees from the Publix at Northgate in Lutz embarked upon our Life Skills East in Dade City to assist with some projects that we needed a hand with. They helped us clean up the outside 'yard' area, planted flowers, painted our wheelchair ramp and even helped with some fun Valentine's craft projects. We are so grateful for all that Publix does to support us! Thank you, Publix!
