A Virtual Celebration of Resilience
Novermber 18, 2020 |  7PM EST

Founded 13 years ago, Give Thanks & Give Back is an annual reception that has grown to be one of the most important sources of funding and awareness for Horton’s Kids. This year’s event will be a virtual celebration of resilience and take you on an exclusive behind the scenes tour of our Community Resource Center in SE DC. On the tour, you will hear from children, families, volunteers, and staff about their experiences during the pandemic that ensure children’s basic needs are met and that they continue to progress academically.

We hope you’ll join Horton’s Kids in supporting children and families in SE DC. Especially in the face of one of the biggest challenges our community has ever seen, we need your commitment to shaping an equitable future. Your support will fuel our programs that help children and their families overcome systemic barriers to food security, gainful employment, quality education, housing, and health care. With your support, Horton’s Kids can cultivate the talent and potential of every child.

Throughout the pandemic, we have been inspired by the resilience, perseverance, strength, and deep sense of community from the residents of Wellington Park and Stanton Oaks. We are honored to be a part of their story, and hope you will be, too. Will you join us?
