About Girls Inc.
The Girls Inc. movement began in New England and has roots as far back as 1864 when it was created in response to the needs of the young women who were among the new working class during the Industrial Revolution.  The group gained national status in 1945.  The organization develops educational programs that encourage young women to master physical, intellectual and emotional challenges, focusing on math and science education, pregnancy, violence and drug abuse prevention, media and economic literacy, health, and participation in sports.  Using innovative methods, Girls Inc. focuses on the changing world of girls in the community and encourages them to live strong and reach their full potential.  As a non-profit organization, Girls Inc. relies on donations from corporations, foundations, and individuals, as well as government grants, to survive, as 77% of their funding comes from these sources.

Although High Profile Staffing is sponsoring this special school supply drive, Girls Inc. has an on-going collection for donations throughout the year, as school supplies are needed all year long.  Click here to learn how you can get involved in the school supply drive.
