100+ Women Who Care Emerald Coast (100+WWCEC) presented a check for $17,206 to the Junior League of the Emerald Coast, Inc. (JLEC) on June 5 towards funds needed for their Child Clothing Project at the Hampton Inn & Suites Destin.

Michelle Ferreria thanked 100+WWCEC and explained the JLEC’s Child Clothing Project mission, “The check from 100WWCEC will go to purchase clothing items for elementary school-aged children in our area. Each year, the Junior League of the Emerald Coast provides a Child Clothing event where local (Okaloosa and Walton County) elementary schools participate. The children chosen are currently enrolled in the free and reduced-rate lunch programs at their respective schools. Each child participating must have a permission slip and release form. The children will receive one package of socks (between 4 and 6 pairs), one package of underwear, two short-sleeved shirts, one long-sleeved shirt, one pair of denim pants, one pair of track pants or leggings, one fleece jacket, and one pair of sneakers.”

JLEC is a 501(c)3 organization. Established in 1965, JLEC works to provide new clothing to over 400 elementary school children each fall. As part of funding the average cost of $100 per child, the organization works to host various fundraising events such as Rock the Roads, Best of the Emerald Coast, Touch A Truck, and The Down and Derby Fest.

100+WWCEC representative Kelly Fuller congratulated JLEC, saying, “Our 2nd quarter meeting was so full of energy and love for our community from all those in attendance. We are happy to be able to support such a worthwhile project. Over the last nine years, 100+WWCEC has been able to help many amazing organizations, has fostered many new friendships, has offered the opportunity for networking among non-profits, and has allowed our members to learn so much about the heroes in our communities. We look forward to continuing to inspire and support our communities for many years to come.”

Fuller welcomes new members to quarterly giving circle citing the next meeting as slated for Tuesday, August 6, at The Place on Beal 100 Beal Parkway NW in Fort Walton Beach. The doors open at 5 p.m. with the meeting running from 5:45 to 6:45 p.m. Each quarter, a local business generously sponsors the meeting’s beverage bar. Omni Broadcasting’s 100.3 KROCK B-Team has committed to sponsoring it for August.
