Welcome to Girls Giving Back
It takes a community to make GGB a huge success, we are thankful for all of you that support GGB. For 2012 we are honoring a Volunteer of the Year and drumroll please......this award goes to the amazing John Kirschenbaum!! John has helped to create and train volunteers to build 31 closet systems in the past 2 years to install at Solid Ground! These closets will help the families to stay organized and without John this part of the GGB shelter renovations project would not be possible! John we are forever grateful to you and all of your hard work, pretty much giving up every Saturday for the past 2 years! YOU ROCK!

GGB enjoyed a wonderful Spring day creating a warm, cozy shelter transformation. Thanks to you and your donations of household items, furnishings and helping hands, we accomplished GGB's mission: Girls Giving Back inspires hope and brings comfort and stability to individuals and families in need by improving living conditions in Puget Sound transitional shelters We are about halfway done with the Solid Ground shelter! Thanks for your continued support!
Girls Giving Back inspires hope and brings comfort and stability to individuals and families in need by improving living conditions in Puget Sound transitional shelters
Girls Giving Back has been serving the local shelter community since the spring of 2009. We provide extensive updates to transitional shelters including: installing new carpet, lighting fixtures, bathroom fixtures, closet additions and performing minor repairs. Along with these services, GGB replaces used mattresses, furnishes the units with gently used donated items and accessorizes the units (including artwork created by local area youth) to create a warm and inviting space for the temporary residents in these buildings.
Through GGB's efforts, individuals seeking shelter are able to experience more than just a roof over their heads, more specifically, by living in this positive environment, they are inspired with hope and encouragement as they move forward with their lives.
