Sawyer County, WI- NorthLakes Community Clinic is launching a 100 Who Care chapter. 100 Who Care is a giving circle group that sees people pool together their money and donate it back to local nonprofits. 100 people donate $100 and then hear five-minute presentations from those nonprofits on why they deserve a portion of the funds. The group says this is a great way to give back without the lengthy grant process. There are 23 100 Who Care chapters in Wisconsin and Sawyer County hopes to have its first live event in April.
