Lucas Group is raising funds to help support Cool Girls, Inc's response to COVID-19.
Cool Girls is a local non-profit that empowers girls living in Atlanta's most vulnerable communities through an after-school Girls Club, mentoring, summer camps, and college scholarships. Cool Girls provides life skills training and support to help girls make positive choices to achieve academic success and lead healthy lives. In March 2020, the onset of the coronavirus pandemic, we began providing our programs virtually to ensure the safety of Cool Girls participants, staff, and volunteers.
While the primary mission and focus of Cool Girls is to provide life skills programming to our Cool Girls participants, we firmly believe that empowerment is only possible when the basic needs of families are securely met. In addition to our virtual program opportunities, we felt it pertinent to also offer financial support to Cool Girls families most impacted by COVID-19. Cool Girls is currently providing gift cards to local grocery stores to help families facing food insecurity as well as rent and utility assistance.
$1,000 will provide 10 families with financial assistance for the month.
