“Girls Inc. of Oak Ridge has had the support of a special group of women for many years. In 1988 Crown Monarch was organized to provide both volunteer and financial support for the newly organized Girls Inc. These volunteers have planned celebrations for Halloween, Christmas, Valentine’s Day, and end of school for many years. Crown Monarch provides all the food, games, crafts, and activities for these parties, as well as the volunteers to interact with the girls. Crown Monarch has held fundraisers over the years, including the Annual Spring Fashion Show (next: April 14, 2020 at The DoubleTree) and the Teddy Bear Tea. All money raised goes toward the support of Girls Inc.
Girls Inc. of the Tennessee Valley has received recognition from Girls Inc. National as the Affiliate of the Year for the second year in a row!! The goal of Girls Inc. is inspiring all girls to be strong, smart, and bold. At Girls, Inc., girls learn to value their whole selves, discover and develop their inherent strengths, and receive the support they need to navigate the challenges they face. Up to 70 girls are served at the center on Oak Ridge Turnpike every afternoon during the school year and all summer for camp programs.
In order to better serve the girls, Crown Monarch would like to invite anyone interested in joining our efforts to support girls to contact Carolyn Walker, Membership Chair at (865) 919-4775 or [email protected] for more information about opportunities available. A tour of the center can be arranged and more information about Crown Monarch will be provided. We look forward to hearing from you!!”
