Today we are highlighting a local Halton family, who chose to financially support our organization this year on behalf of their young daughter, Chloe! One of Chloe's parents, Arnaud, agreed to answer some questions for us about why they chose to support Girls Inc. of Halton.
Arnaud had already heard about Girls Inc. but "learned more about the programs from Shelley [the Executive Director] after meeting her during a local community event."
Chloe is still too young for our programs, which made their donation all the more unique. "To celebrate our daughter’s birthday, we started a new tradition of donating to an organization that had a positive impact for our family during the year." explains Arnaud. "We picked Girls Inc. of Halton this year for its inspirational mission, building a brighter future for all girls within our community."
Arnaud shares what Strong, Smart and Bold means to their family. "It means being open-minded and not afraid of making mistakes, feeling empowered to be yourself."
We look forward to continuing to serve the Halton community and Chloe in a few years! Until then, Arnaud plans to "keep an eye out for upcoming events and we will surely look into opportunities for our daughter to be involved when she is a bit older."
Thanks for the support and we can't wait to see you in our programs Chloe!
