The 100 Women of the Heartland Who Care giving circle gathered at the Nevis Muskie in September to hear presentations from Headwaters Animal Shelter, The Door/Level Ground shelter in Laporte, and Northwoods Wildlife Rescue.

The philanthropic group selected The Door/Level Ground to receive their donation of over $4400. Level Ground is a Laporte home, built in 1906, restored as a coffee house for the community with emergency housing upstairs for those in need.

100 Women of the Heartland Who Care started in 2020 and has donated more than $30,000 to local non-profit groups to date. For more information, email Tracy at tracygaga9@gmail.com or visit www.grapevine.org and search for Women of the Heartland.

Our newsroom occasionally reports stories under a byline of "staff." Often, the "staff" byline is used when rewriting basic news briefs that originate from official sources, such as a city press release about a road closure, and which require little or no reporting. At times, this byline is used when a news story includes numerous authors or when the story is formed by aggregating previously reported news from various sources. If outside sources are used, it is noted within the story.
