Last week’s quarterly meeting of the 100+ People for Perry donors club showered its benevolence on a Perry nonprofit with a long and successful track record: the Perry High School Industrial Technology Department’s Research and Design Program.
The 56 local residents and community supporters in 100+ People first heard three members each pitch a different project, and the membership as a whole then voted for one, with the PHS Research and Design program chosen to receive donations totaling $5,600.
The mission of 100+ People for Perry “is to invest in Perry’s future through supporting current charities/non-profits/worthy projects which advance the quality of life,” according to the group’s statement.
Since its formation in 2016, the group has contributed $46,000 to seven local projects. New members are always welcome. Contact Mark Powell at 515-465-4641 or email@example.com, Tom Lipovac at Tom.Lipovac@perry.k12.ia.us or Linda Kaufman at firstname.lastname@example.org.
The next meeting of 100+ People for Perry will be Monday, Nov. 27 at 7 p.m. at La Poste, 1219 Warford St. in Perry, with socializing starting at 6:30 p.m.
