At the Aug. 5 meeting of 100+ Women Who Care-Cheshire County, the service organization selected Cheshire Smiles — which provides preventative dental services to children without access to dental care in 24 schools throughout Cheshire County — as the latest recipient of a collective donation of $15,000.

In 1996, Cheshire Smiles was conceived and became one of the first school-based dental programs in New Hampshire to provide access to free dental care for children in public schools. The donation will help provide updates to equipment, software and educational materials.

Since its inception over two years ago, 100+Women Who Care-Cheshire County has donated to 12 deserving nonprofits for a total of over $157,000. Based on the simple concept of bringing women together to make a larger impact on our community, membership has grown from 70 to 280 members.

The next meeting of the group will be Monday, Nov. 4 at the Hellenic Hall at St George Greek Church, 70 West St., Keene. From 5:30 to 6 p.m., there will be refreshments and social time. The meeting starts promptly at 6 p.m. and ends at 7 p.m.
