Mission #1 — Accomplished
Habitat for Humanity/Bed, Bath, & Beyond Project
Believing that every child deserves a safe space to call their own, Florida Girls Giving Back (FGGB) teamed with the 2015 Habitat for Humanity family sponsored by Surfacelogix. With a teenage girl and two boys in the family, FGGB provided an afternoon excursion to Bed, Bath, & Beyond, allowing each child to select bedding and décor for his or her bedroom. For the teenage daughter, in particular, this included decorative candles, a vanity mirror, wall hangings and a comfy bedding ensemble. Helping each child select their very own room theme, the FGGB girls provided approximately $800.00 worth of items, yet the ultimate value was the smile on the family’s faces.
Mission #2 — A great time for all!
Exploring with Taylor’s Closet
Pursuing our vision of impacting the lives of those in need throughout our community, FGGB spent a day learning more about Taylor’s Closet, a south Florida-based organization committed to empowering girls in need to break the cycle of abuse and neglect and to live healthy, happy, and productive lives. We look forward to partnering with Taylor’s Closet and helping in its mission to provide a safe place for girls to shop designer clothes for free, and in helping to unlock their creative talents in fashion, art, and design!
Mission #3 — Building from the ground, up!
We’re partnering with Habitat Humanity for another amazing opportunity
FGGB is proud to announce that we are serving as a Legacy Sponsor for Habitat for Humanity of Broward’s most recent project—the construction of a new home for a local mother and her three children. What really sets this family apart is that the mother is hearing impaired and two of her children are physically disabled (one deaf, and another suffering from cerebral palsy). Habitat Broward is starting construction of a home that has been specially designed to meet the needs of the local family. We are extremely grateful to get involved! We will be aiding the entire process—helping with the interior framing of the home, building a mailbox , designing and planting a garden, and much more. Once completed, we will even have the privilege of presenting the Williams Family with the official key to their home in a heart-warming home dedication. The ground-breaking will take place on November 20.
“Not only has FGGB been an amazing learning experience for me but it has completely changed my view on volunteering in the community along with learning the steps needed to make a non-profit run effectively. Yes, joining FGGB will look extremely good for college however, I guarantee you will get more out of FGGB than a simple resume builder. Joining FGGB allows you an opportunity to get out of your comfort zone, collaborate with other likeminded ladies, plan & attend fundraisers, potentially hold a leadership position, and most importantly change the lives of others.”
