Pathways for Keene/Keene Skate Park is the most recent recipient of a donation from 100+ Women Who Care Cheshire County.

The total donation when all the checks are in is expected to be more than $16,000. The funds will be used to build a new, poured-concrete skate park in Keene, on the corner of School Street and Gilbo Avenue. The park will be free and open to the public.

Since its inception in 2016, 100+Women Who Care Cheshire County has donated to 13 non-profit organizations for a total of more than $180,000. Based on the simple concept of bringing women together to make a larger impact on our community, membership has grown from 70 to 305 members.
