Chicks for Charity Hopkins County received the Community Pride Award Thursday night during the 89th Annual Hopkins County Chamber of Commerce Banquet.

Chicks for Charity started in November  2011 with a social gathering in the fellowship hall at First United Methodist Church. Each of eight women who regularly met as a dinner club invited 10 other women who shared their desire to make a difference in the community. When they met, each brought a blank $50 check and the desire to fund a 501c3 charity. Three women were chosen to present their charity and a secret ballot vote determined the recipient charity.

As he presenting the award, County Judge Robert Newsom emphasized the simplicity of Chicks for Charity. He stated they have no bank account, no Board of Directors, everything is handled by email, word-of-mouth, or social media. He continued by pointing out there is no postage or overhead cost and First United Methodist Church waives the Hall fee.

To date, Chicks for Charity has donated over $78,000 to Hopkins County non-profit organizations that provide meals, life experience, and other needs for youth, adults, and seniors.

Chicks for Charity define themselves as women who are passionate about supporting communities in Hopkins County. Members are of all ages, come from all walks of life, all denominations, and different financial backgrounds. Working as a group, they determine to have the ability to contribute to the good of the community in ways they never thought possible.
