Do More For Girls of Delaware!

A fundraiser for Girls Inc. of Delaware

$1,320 raised from 7 donors

$500 goal

I’m Laurie Barba.

I’m fundraising for Girls Inc. of Delaware.

I have been associated with girls inc since 2015. I was an employee there for 2 years then involved through fundraising, volunteering and attending events. I always told my husband that one day I would be back at Girls Inc as board member. It became a goal of mine. You know what they say speak your goals into existence. 

Fast forward few years, I received an email from two board members I remembered fondly and respected. They asked if I was interested and I just asked where to sign! 

It has always been about the transformation for me. Watching our staff and our members work together in action was my favorite thing to see and hear when working. I loved knowing our girls felt comfortable, safe and they were free to be themselves!  

I am committed to the board, staff, our volunteers and most importantly our girls to do right by them. 
A plus to joining this board .....I have met the most wonderful women who have taught me SO much in such a short period of time!
