Crossroads Pregnancy Clinic wins Power of 100 donations of $4,500

Power of 100 Women Lincoln County held its first quarter of 2021 event on February 8th, 2021. At this event, three local non-profit applicants were selected to present for their organization to receive the group’s donation. Carriage House Players, Crossroads Pregnancy Clinic, and the Lincoln County Museum presented for 5 minutes each about their organization’s mission and need for additional funds. Carriage House Players spoke about how they benefit our community and offer a Summer Drama Camp for children ages 8 to 17. CHP explained their need for funds to recover from the impacts of COVID and remodel their new building. Crossroads Pregnancy Clinic exists to care for women and men facing unplanned pregnancies by providing life-affirming education through pregnancy decision counseling. Crossroads also assist families with parenting classes and the opportunity to earn cribs, car seats, diapers, and more. Lincoln County Museum spoke on its mission to educate the community on the history of Lincoln County. The museum is open for tours Thursday-Saturday in May thru November. Lincoln County Museum is seeking volunteers and funds to do maintenance on the building and expand the museum. The museum receives no funding from the local government but instead relies on the generosity of visitors and community supporters. Members then voted and selected Crossroads Pregnancy Clinic to be the winner of Power of 100’s first donation. This event also raised awareness of these organizations’ needs and how they benefit the community. At last count, Crossroads received $4,500 from Power of 100 Women Lincoln County members with funds still being received. Power of 100 Women is a national movement with a simple concept. 100 Women donate $100. Power of 100 Women meets once every three months to hear from three non-profits that benefit Lincoln County. Then members will vote to select one of these organizations and donate $100 directly to the winning organization. Power of 100 was created to see a huge impact on the community by donating $100 multiplied by 100 members for a $10,000 award. Junior’s House was selected during the previous quarter meeting and received $4,300. In just two quarterly meetings within three months, Power 100 Women Lincoln County donated $8,800!
