Five stores on Main Street helped support Girls Inc. by allowing the girls to sell their crafts, such as flips-flops, purses and bumblebee pins, from 2 to 4 p.m. Saturday, June 25. The stores also gave 10% of all purchases made that day to help support Girls Inc.Credible, a summer camp fashion club that focuses on inner beauty, self-esteem and healthy body image.
About 10 girls from Girls Inc.Credible helped sell the creations inside Lotus, Main Street Traders, Simply Spoiled Boutique, Picobello and Stitch Boutique.
Case manager for Girls Inc., Sue Schell, bought an entire outfit at Lotus because she knew the proceeds would benefit the organization.
“I’d do anything for Girls Inc.,” she said after picking out her new outfit.
