The North Mecklenburg Woman’s Club recently presented the Davidson Housing Coalition and HAMMERS (Hands Around Mooresville/Mecklenburg Emergency Repair Service) an $8,000 check from money raised at the club’s Over the Table Top designer showcase event in November.
That was the single largest gift to a local nonprofit or individuals, but club leaders also gave:
• $5,000 to the Angels and Sparrows Soup Kitchen in Huntersville to buy a professional-grade dishwasher. The new dishwasher will save soup kitchen founder Sandy Tilley about $700 per month by discontinuing use of paper plates and cups.
• $1,200 to the Mooresville Soup Kitchen to use as needed.
• $2,500 scholarship checks to Cornelius Elementary School teachers Christine Browder and Annalee Taylor to help them earn their National Board Certification.
• A $3,000 scholarship to Diane Means, a counselor at the Ada Jenkins Center in Davidson, to help her pursue a master’s in counseling at the University of North Carolina at Charlotte.
• A scholarship to Miss Queen City Sarah Southard to pursue a master’s in business. The club sponsored Southard in the local pageant earlier this year.
