Through outreach efforts and online programming following the Covid-19 closures in March, Girls Inc. partnered with local agencies to address community needs. With Carpinteria Unified School District and the 93013 Fund, Girls Inc. also assisted in providing 500 bags of school supplies and food boxes for the most vulnerable students in the community.
On June 1, Girls Inc. reopened its Carpinteria campus with new safety measures for a limited number of girls whose parents are essential workers. The organization continues to support its members remotely through wellness sessions, virtual workouts, daily STEAM content via its YouTube channel, daily read-a-louds on Facebook, virtual academic support, virtual hangouts, delivery of supplies and books, and more.
