Girls Incorporated of Taunton is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit school that has been serving the Greater Taunton and surrounding areas for over 100 years. If you live in the neighborhood, you know our building and you know the impact we have had and continue to have on young girls in our community.
Because of the COVID-19 pandemic, we had to physically shut our doors on Monday, March 13th. We are still unsure when we will be able to reopen our doors to serve the families and children in our community. Needless to say, this places a tremendous financial burden on our organization. We had to cancel our April Vacation care, our Woman of Achievement event (our largest fundraiser), and with all of the uncertainty surrounding summer camp, we are anticipating a reduction in registration with a total estimated loss of income to date of $37,000.
Throughout all of this, we stay dedicated to our mission of inspiring all girls to be strong, smart and bold and staying connected with our members. To do so, we have been offering two daily activities via Zoom with our staff members offering social and emotional support, physical activity, STEM activities and more!
We are asking for donations to help us through these challenging times. We know many of you are all dealing with your own challenges and we thank you for thinking of us.
