Girls Inc. is the beneficiary of a matching donation program put on by One Bank in honor of the bank's 120th anniversary.

During the month of October, donations made to Girls Inc. at One Bank in Oak Ridgewere matched at 120% for Girls Inc.'s programs for area girls ages 5 to 14.

Girls Inc. of TennesseeValley is a local nonprofit organization that provides intentional and research-based programs in the areas of STEM (science, technology, engineering and mathematics), economics, healthy mind, and body, and more to more than 1,300 girls across Anderson, Blount, and Knox counties.

"Inspiring all girls to be strong, smart, and bold is our main mission, and we know that empowering girls in our community improves lives, strengthens communities, and benefits society as a whole," stated a news release.

Girls Inc. of TennesseeValley has been providing programming in Oak Ridge for more than 40 years, and they are excited for what this donation brings to the organization.

"Many of the girls we serve are in need of affordable, reliable, and quality childcare, but many times (their parents or guardians) do not have the ability to pay the high cost of childcare. Our program offers need based scholarships that the donations from our community members and One Bank will directly impact. With this donation, we will be able to offer more scholarships for our girls going into the new year," Kirby Deal, executive director, stated in the release.
