Since Girls Inc. of Metropolitan Dallas recently participated in our Thanksgiving card design contest, we found it fitting to make them our November charity spotlight!
Girls Incorporated of Metropolitan Dallas (Girls Inc.) was established in 1968. The mission of Girls Inc. is to inspire all girls to be Strong, Smart and Bold. Their vision is that all girls graduate from high school equipped for success with personal effectiveness, academic and career planning competencies. Career planning competencies include college and other post-secondary high school education.
The four campuses – located in West Dallas, South Dallas, North Oak Cliff, and Love Field -currently have the capacity to provide quality programs for over 800 girls, ages 6-18, through after-school programming during the school year, and all day programming in the summer months. 70% of the girls come from families with incomes of less than $30,000 a year and 66% of the girls live with a single, or neither, parent.
High Profile is thankful to have the opportunity to work with this great organization. This year, we have been privileged to participate in the following:
- Field trip to The Perot Museum
- Reception honoring the graduating seniors
- Back to School supply drive for the girls
- Thanksgiving card design contest
