New Girls'Biz group forming September 2021
2020-2021 Virtual Girls'Biz program
GIRLS’BIZ is a program for middle school girls, empowering the girls to start and run their own group business with the help of experienced women business owners. In 20-21, the program went virtual with an on-line store. Six girls participated, chose the name the Fireflies, developed their logo and chose their products. They learned about selling on-line and participated in zoom sales presentations with WWE, Zonta and AAUW. The orders were assembled at Fired-Up Pottery on Monona Drive.
After researching several charities, the girls voted to donate $500 to F.O.S.T.E.R. of Dane County after they learned about the positive impact this charity makes in our community, and especially in this year of the pandemic.
The remaining profit was split between the girls, as it is every year. Each member of the Fireflies will receive a profit share of $100! WWE has sponsored the GIRLS’BIZ program since 1996. It is open to all middle school girls in Dane County and a new group forms each September. Learn more and register your middle school girl for the new 21-22 GIRLS’BIZ group on the website: www.wwesouthcentral.org/girlsbiz.
Ms. Jackie Hunt is the founder and CEO of F.O.S.T.E.R. of Dane County. The name means Families Overcoming Struggles to Encourage Restoration. Ms. Hunt gathers resources of donated food, supplies, money and volunteers and she distributes to those who can benefit from accessing these resources in Dane County. Many other services are provided. Learn more and donate on their website: www.fosterdanecounty.org.
