About 100+ People:
100+ People Who Care Tewksbury currently has 130 individual and team members and is open to any Tewksbury resident. Members/teams of two agree to donate $100 per quarter to the nonprofit selected by the group. Each quarter, members/teams may nominate their favorite nonprofit for selection.
