Horton's Kids School Supply Kits
Horton’s Kids empowers children growing up in DC’s most under-resourced communities so that they graduate from high school ready for success in college, career, and life. We serve 500 children in grades K-12 living in Wellington Park and Stanton Oaks – neighborhoods profoundly impacted by decades of disinvestment and barriers to opportunity.
The average family in these communities has an annual income of less than $10,000. As a result each year the cost of school supplies and backpacks adds up quickly and stretches budgets. These new supplies will be critical to ensuring the long-term academic success of our participants, especially as many return to in-person classes for the first time in a year and a half.
