Horton's Kids

Thank you for supporting Operation Backpacks and Horton’s Kids, a local nonprofit that empowers over 500 at-risk children in grades K-12 living in one of DC’s most under-resourced neighborhoods. This year, we’re partnering with Sprout School Supplies to make donating easy and safe for you and for the children and families we serve.

By purchasing a supply kit or making a $25 gift towards a backpack, you can ensure our participants have everything they need to start next school year prepared and ready to learn, whether in the classroom or at home. Each individually packaged student kit includes all the teacher requested school supplies listed and FREE delivery to our Community Resource Center in SE DC, steps away from the children’s homes.

Please make your donation by Tuesday, July 14. If you do not wish for your information to be shared with Horton’s Kids for a thank you, please notify help@sproutsupplies.com to opt-out. If you have questions about the donation drive or Horton’s Kids, please email Jenn Coleman, Director of Individual Giving at jenn@hortonskids.org.
