Sunday was proclaimed Strong Girls Day in Athens by Athens-Clarke County Mayor Nancy Denson, honoring the local Strong Girls initiative and its Strong Girls Serve program.
Strong Girls Serve is a monthly community service project-based organization for girls in grades 5-8. Soon to be its own nonprofit arm of Strong Girls, Strong Girls Serve seeks to engage in monthly service projects for a local nonprofit in Athens, as part of its mission to instill a lifelong desire in young girls to participate in hands-on service projects in order to give back to their community.
Most recently, Strong Girls Serve focused on the Athens Emergency Food Bank. On Sunday, Strong Girls Serve revealed its Little Free Pantry, part of a communitywide effort to provide easy access to food for people who need it. The sTogn Girls Serve pantry was built by Sons of Sawdust, a local wood reclamation business.
Also on Sunday, Strong Girls Serve revealed its new mural, painted by members of the group with help from local art therapist Meg Abbott.
“Help us fill the pantry with non-perishable food items while giving back to our community,” said Rachel Greb, cofounder of Strong Girls.
