As we wrap up Thanksgiving festivities, we want to thank a very special group of people to Girls Inc. – our volunteers! Last year, volunteers gave 7,240 hours of direct service. Without their hard work and commitment to the Girls Inc. mission, we would not be able to serve the girls of Greater Indianapolis.

Last month, we ran a volunteer recruitment campaign called Girlfriends for Girls Inc. Participants were asked to spread the word about volunteering for Girls Inc. to their family and friends through social media and word of mouth. Whoever recruited one of their friends to volunteer was entered to win a $50 Visa gift card. Word of mouth is our number one recruitment method, and our volunteers are our greatest advocates.

A record 23 volunteers participated this year! Also, Katie Carlson was the winner of the gift card! Congratulations, Katie, and thank you to everyone who participated!
