Members of 100 Women Who Care met for their third quarter meeting in September to nominate, advocate and select a charitable cause. Mary Yelton was randomly selected to present on behalf of CRADLES. During her presentation, Yelton shared how CRADLES works to break the cycle of poverty by providing developmentally appropriate activities for children while their parents work on obtaining their education. According to Yelton, “The only way to break the cycle of poverty is through education.”
This is the third of four annual donations made by this group. The $10,600 donation is composed of $100 gifts from each of the 106 members in 100 Women Who Care Clay County. The funds will be used to help subsidize the program costs for families enrolled in CRADLES.
