CEDAR RAPIDS — Some 180 younger men from the metro area and Linn County have created a charitable organization called 100+Men Who Care.
The group’s central focus is to meet quarterly and, as part of the gathering, to each donate $100 to a cause.
On Monday, the group presented its first check, a $14,500, to Make-A-Wish.
“Our core mission is to make an immediate impact on our community and change lives,” said David Sorg, president of 100+Men Who Care.
Brent Oleson, a board member, said the group’s effort will help four different causes or charities each year.
“This shows the power of local people banding together to better our community in a fun and positive way,” Oleson said.
