New or gently used sports equipment, playground equipment, maintenance volunteers. We are currently seeking funding to repair our East Bradenton and Palmetto outdoor activity areas for ADA compliance and general safety. This is an urgent need!

Memorials / Honorariums

Memorial cards are available at Just for Girls'as a way to honor the special lives and memory of our loved ones.
