$4,300 is in the hands of Foothills SNAPS, thanks to "100 Women Who Care Foothills."

They handed over the cheque Monday, March 13.

Orvella Small with SNAPS says they can definitely use the money.

"We're able to put it into places where we maybe didn't have the funding, and actually this year we have some shortfalls in our budget. So, it's actually going to help with some of the funding that were aren't going to have, that we know already isn't going to happen."

The "100 Women Who Care," get together again Thursday, May 4 to decide on who will get their next donation.
