We are excited to conduct our 6th annual Girls Giving Back event December 10th in Lithia. We will continue our partnerships with "A Kid's Place" helping Foster girls by donating Shoe Box gifts filled and stuffed as much as possible with fun holiday presents & stocking stuffer items. This event may be held at A Kid's Place (in Valrico) and we will know more as the date gets closer. For now we plan on having it at Lamb of God.
The holidays can be stressful and so this year, we are running this event like an open house, come anytime between 1-4pm. Activities will be creating a card to place in the box and then decorating the outside of your shoe box with rhinestones, stickers, foamies, markers, glitter and anything we can find to make it look beautiful. In addition, we will decorate cookies, make ornaments and sing Christmas carrolls on our Karaoke machine.
Anyone can join in this event...girls in Pre-K-12th and Parents are welcome too. Moms and Dads don't need to register, just email us after you register your daughter to let us know you are attending too and to let us know if you'd like to bring a shoebox too. If you are registering more than one daughter, use the coupon code sibling15 and receive 15% off your registration. If your daughter participates in our Girls With Leadership program, we are going to hold our monthly meeting prior to this event and ask the girls to stay and volunteer. CLICK HERE to register for the GWL Girls Giving Back meeting.
Here's how Girls Giving Back works. Once you register your daughter, about 2 weeks before the event, you'll receive an email with the name of a child your daughter will buy small gift items for. Below is a list of some ideas of some gift items for your shoe box but you can do your own thing and get creative. You'll need to bring the "unwrapped" box with the gift items in it on the day of the event.
Due to the safety and security of our recipients, the girls participating in Girls Giving Back won't be able to meet them, however they will share in a great experience of helping those in need especially during the holidays.
Lastly, we will donate all profits from this event to our Angel Network which allows us to scholarship and fund girls who may not be able to afford our workshops or camps. Last year Girls With Confidence ran a camp for the Florida's Baptist Children's Home in Lakeland for teenage girls using the Angel Network. We were also able to fund approx. 10 additional girls in our camps. Please help us continue to offer these scholarships by making a donation of any size.
