The funds will be applied to their annual dinner, golf tournament, 5K race and also provides two girls with scholarships to attend summer camp and one-year memberships. Girls Inc.  of Wayne County inspires all girls to be strong, smart, and bold through direct service and advocacy. Their comprehensive approach to whole girl development equips girls to navigate gender, economic, and social barriers and grow up healthy, educated, and independent.  

“Girls Inc. appreciates our long-standing partnership with First Bank. First Bank and other community partners make our work possible- to provide the Girls Inc. Experience. Girls are given opportunities to learn and practice leadership skills, build their confidence, and understand and exercise their rights. Girls Inc.'s work is more relevant now than ever.  Collaborating with empathetic partners like First Bank Richmond in support of our mission gives me deep hope for our community's future. We are so grateful for First Bank and thank them for helping us to inspire ALL Girls to be strong, smart, and bold!”
