Participate in Operation Backpacks through July 14th

Donate to Horton’s Kids “Operation Backpacks” 


DC Hoos invites you to participate Operation Backpacks, Horton’s Kids’ annual donation drive that provides school supplies and backpacks to hundreds of children living in one of DC’s most under-resourced neighborhoods.

The children Horton’s Kids serves are still experiencing significant hardships because of COVID-19. As their families prepare for next school year, the costs of school supplies and backpacks will add up quickly and stretch budgets – making your donation more essential than ever before!

Please consider donating a school supply kit or making a $25 gift for a backpack by Tuesday, July 14. Your support will ensure that a child has all the necessary school supplies and – most importantly – the confidence to learn, whether in the classroom or at home. Each supply kit includes all the teacher-requested school supplies and FREE delivery to the Horton’s Kids Community Resource Center, steps away from the children’s homes. Backpack dollar donations will be used to purchase each kid a durable backpack that’s as unique and as special as they are.

Thank you for showing your Wahoo generosity of spirit and supporting children and families in our local community!
