Girls - Reaching us and teaching us how to make the world a better place
Over the last two weeks, Girls Inc has provided leadership for three important community programs: Dresses for a Cure (4/17), Take Our Daughters to Work Day (4/23) and the Taking Steps Walk (4/26) to end violence against women and families. The best part of all of these programs is that girls took the opportunities be their best - to lead - to positively impact our community.
