DOING GOOD IN THE

LOCAL COMMUNITY

Sometimes it may seem that the needs around us are too great to tackle, but every little bit of help counts. And though it may seem impossible to find a solution to those needs, a small step is still a step in the right direction. This is why there will be $1 from every flower bunch sold donated to charity! Each season the charity will

change so that we can spread the love around.

This season we're donating to Girls Inc. of Jacksonville. This organization focuses on girls in low income areas of Duval County, in grades K-8th and has been in operation locally since 1970. Its vision is to break the generational cycles of female poverty and welfare through a unique “whole girl” comprehensive approach to ensure girls have the opportunities to overcome gender, economic and social barriers and thrive!  Its mission is to inspire all girls to be strong, smart and bold through life-changing programs and experiences that help girls navigate gender, economic and social barriers. Research-based curricula, delivered by trained, mentoring professionals in a positive all-girl environment equip girls to achieve academically; lead healthy and physically active lives; manage money; navigate media messages; and discover an interest in science, technology, engineering, arts and math. Girls Inc. of Jacksonville is a local affiliate of a national organization The network of local Girls Inc. affiliate organizations serves 125,000 girls ages 5-18 annually across the United States and Canada. 

 

Every bunch sold will help Girls Inc. create a better future for the 1,100 girls served annually in NE Florida. Growing up is serious business. Every dollar spent on a Girls Inc. prevention program will save countless dollars later, and Girls Inc. is able to put .86 cents of every dollar donated directly back into programs that serve girls in the Jacksonville area. Thank you for supporting Girls Inc. of Jacksonville and inspiring all girls to be Strong, Smart & Bold!
