100 Men of Scugog
100 Men of Scugog Show their BIG Hearts during Covid 19
Covid 19 has affected our community in many ways, not all negatively.
One month after everything was shut down, the 100 Men were supposed to meet. What should we do? The Food bank had put out a call to everyone as our community was feeling the affects. After asking the Men, it was decided that for this quarter, while there was so much uncertainty, that we should support the Food Bank. Additionally, it was felt that the donations be made optional. It just seemed the right thing to do.
We are happy to report that $5,300 was raised for the food bank proving once again that you can’t dampen the spirits and generosity of a group of big hearted, community minded guys. Well done.
Want to join in the fun while giving to your community? It’s only 4 hours per year. Come join us! You get to meet other big hearted, community minded men.
How did 100 Men of Scugog Start?
At a function at The Old Flame Brewery in Port Perry, one of the organizers of 100 Women that Care asked, “Why don’t the men do something like the women did?”
“What is it?” I asked?
“Well, the 100 women that Care Scugog get together 4 times a year to do something good for our community. There’s a process where we vote for a local charity. Each of the 100 Women write a cheque for $100 and the local charity gets $10,000 at the end of the evening!”
And, so 100 Men of Scugog was born. After one hour of asking the men in the room if they wanted to join we had 14! And from there it grew. It’s apparent the 100 Men of Scugog care about local community causes. Are you one? Join us by filling out:
How it works in a nutshell
We gather for just one hour every three months. At each meeting, we jointly select a local charity or not-for-profit organization and write a $100 cheque (per person) to the selected organization. No committees, no bank account, no fees.
