Girls on the Rise Fundraising Activities
New York City Trip
April 12- April 14, 2019
Spring 2019 is going to be an exciting time for our Middle Schoolers!! For the first time ever, we will be taking our girls to New York City. They will have the opportunity to learn about themselves through travel and culture, and get firsthand knowledge of why New York City is called the “The Great American Melting Pot.”
The girls are working very hard planning fundraising events to help pay for some of the expenses for their trip to New York City this spring. Here is how you can help the girls get there! Each month, we will post different fundraising activities online that you can participate in to help the girls raise money for their trip. Thank you for your continued support!
Our older girls have been challenged to read books to our younger girls and create activities surrounding the importance of literacy. We need your help by donating 10 dollars for every book read. For example, if they read 5 books that would be a $50 dollar donation. The girls have a goal to read 10 books!

Our girls and staff will participate in baby photo contest Photos will be displayed at the Merrick center and on our social media sites where people can vote on their favorite photos by donating $5.00. The person with the photo that has the most funds will be spotlighted on our Girls on the Rise social media site.
When donating, choose "Other" and put in "Girls on the Rise NYC".
