100 Men Who Care Group Forming In Greater SJ

A group of men getting together to show they care too. 

A 100 Men Who Care chapter is beginning to form in the city, inspired by the local women's group that raised $18,500 dollars at their first meeting for the SPCA and $20,000 for Romero House at their second. Organizer Michael Whelton tells CHSJ News after seeing what they accomplished, he thought the men in the greater Saint John area should step up to the plate.

Each man involved gives a hundred dollars four times a year. At a meeting, three organizations make a presentation, and the one with the most votes from the men gets all of the money. Whelton says the initiative gives community-minded men the opportunity to get together and help local charities.

There are 60 men currently registered. The first meeting is on December 3 at Millidgeville North School, 500 Woodward Avenue at 5:30pm. Click here for a link to their website.
