Give a family one less thing to worry about.

Alabama is currently the nation’s sixth poorest state. Nearly 300,000 of our state’s children live below the poverty line, including 54% of the girls who participate in Girls Inc. programming.

On top of all the bills needing to be paid – housing, food, utilities – Birmingham and Bessemer City School parents also need to purchase uniforms for their children.

The cost of an average uniform is just $27.46. While that might not seem like much for many of us, when competing with other, more essential expenses on an already tight budget, it can be an enormous burden for many parents of our girls. And of course, our girls will need more than one uniform to get through one week, let alone an entire school year.

You can help alleviate this burden. Girls Inc. is collecting money to purchase two uniforms each for girls in need. With a donation of just $27.46, you can provide a Birmingham or Bessemer City School girl with a uniform. For $54.92, you’ll provide her with two. $274.60 would provide two uniforms for five girls.

The more you give, the more a struggling family can spend on food to send their child to school with a full belly, ready to learn and to succeed.

Please join us in our modest effort to make life a little easier for the loving families of our girls. Education is a critical component in breaking the cycle of poverty into which many of our girls have been born. You can help brighten a girl’s future by sending her to school in a fresh, new uniform that will give her confidence to grow strong, smart, and bold.

Want to give more than just a uniform? You can! Any money raised above what is needed to purchase uniforms for at-need girls will go directly into Girls Inc. program to help them excel in school, make healthy decisions, and build confidence.
