Thanks for another successful back to school season!
By: Empower Girls
Empower Girls got our very start in 2014 with a back to school conference for young ladies in middle and high school and we’ve made it a priority ever since to prepare young ladies for success at the beginning of each school year.
This year we took things a step further by collaborating with New Beginnings Church and other community leaders to present our first ever co-ed back to school youth conference, which was a HUGE success.
Thanks to the outpouring of love and support from our community we were able to host dozens of youth at our Back to School conference. Each student was provided with lunch and healthy snacks, a backpack filled with school supplies, and age-appropriate toiletries and personal care items.
Of the few dozen youth in attendance at our conference represent only a fraction of the total amount of kids we were able to help get ready for back to school. Thanks to your donations and other contributions we were able to provide school supplies to dozens more children across Harford and Cecil counties. We also handed out new and gently used clothes and shoes to many families in need.
The impact we had on our community this year was larger and more far-reaching than it’s ever been and we have our supporters to thank for that. We are only able to do so much for the girls we mentor and their families because of the support we receive, and we think it no small thing to have so many people making a conscious effort to help us achieve our goals.
