BENEFITING: GIRLS INCORPORATED OF CARPINTERIA
EVENT DATE: Dec 21, 2012
At this time of year, as we reflect on the abundance we enjoy, we are especially grateful for your heartwarming contributions to Girls Inc. of Carpinteria.
We had an incredible year at Girls Inc. of Carpinteria and there is much to be proud of:
- Twenty-five girls spent four weeks at the University of California, Santa Barbara engaged in our Eureka! program. The inaugural five-year, college bound program gives girls the opportunity to learn more about STEM (science, technology, engineering and math) while focusing on college readiness and personal development. This spring Eurekans will visit another college campus – showing them that they too, can belong. The Eureka! program is changing the lives of girls, their families and the community.
- Andrea Delgado, who has attended Girls Inc. since Kindergarten, was one of ten girls nationally to receive a highly competitive Girls Inc. National Scholarship. She is now busy preparing her applications for colleges all over the country. Girls Inc. of Carpinteria has produced 18 Girls Inc. National Scholars.
- We touched 704 girls' lives in Carpinteria through after-school academic support and enrichment, teen mentoring and sports. We encourage them to DARE, DREAM, DO!
We hope you will consider Girls Inc. of Carpinteria once again should you have special year-end giving plans. Secure donations may be made on line at crowdrise.
Again, we thank you! We remain grateful for your support and for all you do to help the girls in our community.
