Our selected charity at the June 2022
Meeting: Elevated Access
Total Donations - $8,253
We had two charities nominated for our June meeting. After hearing from each charity, our members chose Elevated Access.
Thank you to all who donated! 42 members donated to Elevated Access, the selected charity, for a total of $5,210. There was a recent article about it in Rolling Stone about Elevated Access if you’d like to read more about the organization.
SaLT, Serving and Learning Together, which was also presented at our meeting, garnered $2,675 from 29 people. I also dropped off some groceries and school supplies that people donated. It is assisting families affected by the Highland Park tragic shootings, among many other great things that it does.

Finally, 6 people donated a total of $368 to our last selected charity from December’s Animal Charity Night, Our House of Hope Rescue, after they heard Lisa Krinninger’s thank you during our Zoom meeting.
In total, WGB raised $8,253 from our June meeting. It’s a testament to the generosity of our members that so many people donated to more than one charity.
Thank you, as always.
