A word from our founder

"Raising Girls aims to help all our youths feel pride in who they are and understand the power they have to be unique individuals who can make a difference."

What I can say is that anytime I have asked for care bags for students of all genders Raising Girls promptly responds and even offers to deliver them right to our school! Raising Girls has even provided specific bags for certain types of hair and skin. We are very grateful to have them in our community - always willing to help and deliver a generous number of hygiene items to students who need them. 

Thank you Raising Girls!

School Counselor, Jefferson Elementary

Every quarter, I reach out to Raising Girls to ask for their support in providing care bags to the youth in my program. The care bags provided by Raising Girls are filled with hygiene products, toiletries, and a few special items that help the youth feel seen. Access to these products are often lacking in these young people's lives. Raising Girls' generous donation of care bags to our program allows us to provide these items to young people before they even have to experience the discomfort of asking for them. Knowing these products will be donated at the end of each quarter allows me to stretch my program dollars in other areas of need like food and art supplies. It is always so special to watch youth go through their bags with smiles on their faces.
