Girls, Inc. of the Pacific Northwest tells us how our grant has supported its mission:

Marie Lamfrom’s generous grant has allowed us not only to increase the number of girls we serve, but also to offer experiences not usually available to them. The girls have planted a garden at the Eastside Learning Garden, which is sponsored by the Oregon Food Bank. They’ve gone on a hike on Mt. Hood, where they learned how to hunt for edible mushrooms, and afterward, cooked and ate them. Despite some initial complaints about the weather, the girls loved this adventure and were eager to return.

Girls, Inc. of the Pacific Northwest is dedicated to empowering girls, helping them succeed, overcome challenges, and create an equitable society. The support of organizations like the Marie Lamfrom Charitable Foundation helps Girls, Inc. succeed.
