Local Philanthropists, 100 Airdrie Men, Give to Health
Airdrie's 100 Men Who Give A Damn decided healthcare was the way to go at their quarterly meeting on Tuesday night (July 17).
The group, whose goal is to provide $10,000 to one Airdrie charity per quarter, voted to give their donation this time around to the Airdrie Health Foundation. One of the organizing committee members Jack Lumley explained why.
"All three groups were really compelling but what Airdrie Health Foundation offered was a real good plan of where the $10,000 was going to go. They've got some ideas around helping out mental health, specifically with children, and it was something that I think touched a lot of people in the room. Their use of the money to help out with mental health I think, in today's day and age, really resonated with the members."
