Thanks to the Central Indiana Community Foundation’s Neighbor Relief Fund Grant, we were able to provide some relief to 73 Girls Inc. Indy families in the form of $250 Kroger gift cards to use for food or gas.

We selected families who need us the most right now from each of our high-impact programs: EmpowerHubs, Young Women in Leadership, Eureka!, and Summer Camp.

“I just want to say thank you very much. Having extra money for food is extremely helpful with so much uncertainty around us. Please know that we are grateful,” said a parent of a girl participating in our Eureka! Program.

Another parent shared their gratitude, “It was such a blessing to find support in these trying times. I cannot thank Girls Inc. enough for the blessings you all have given my family. Thank you from all of us.”

With the funds that remained after purchasing and sending the gift cards, we were able to help support our staff members’ salaries this summer, including our program staff who worked directly to support many girls and their families through our summer programming.
