UXBRIDGE: 100 Men Who Care will be holding their inaugural meeting next week, as the group begins its mission to make an impact on the Uxbridge community.
Following on the heels of 100 Women Who Care and 100 Kids Who Care, the men’s group held an information meeting in December ahead of their first quarterly meeting, which is scheduled for Wednesday, Jan. 14, starting at 7:30 p.m., at Mill Run Golf Course, located at 269 Durham Rd. 8.
“I’m very excited about what this group represents, and the excitement for it in the community. Hopefully it starts off with a bang,” founder Roger Prince told The Standard. “We love that we’re following in the footsteps of 100 Women Who Care, and they great job that they’ve done.”
Mill Run has graciously provided the meeting space for all four of this year’s meetings, as well as refreshments for those in attendance. Those planning to attend are asked to arrive 15 minutes early, and the meeting is expected to last for just over an hour.
At the meeting, group members - who can sign up individually or in teams of up to four - bring a $100 cheque and an idea for a charity serving the Uxbridge area that they’d like to support. Once the ideas are submitted, three finalists are drawn and the nominator makes a short presentation, after which the members vote on which charity will be awarded the donation for that quarter.
“For a lot of people, this is the perfect way to be involved in the community and do something that’s really impactful, without cutting too much into people’s personal time. It’s such a win all the way around,” added Mr. Prince.
