Playtime is Going Back 2 School (Here's How You Can Help!)

Having just experienced the July 4th holiday, it’s hard to imagine going back to class. For the children at Playtime, we know that the transition back to school in less than two months will be one of the most important ones in their young lives. We’re committed to getting Playtimers started right – with the encouragement, support, and practical tools they need to focus on their studies.

In our experience, having the right school supplies makes all the difference in the world. This year, we’re committed to providing children experiencing homelessness with a new backpack, stuffed with all the equipment they will need to excel this fall.

We need your help. Can you deliver one or more stuffed backpacks to children living at one of the five sites we serve – DC General, DASH, Community of Hope, Turning Point, and New Beginning?

If you, your university, place of worship, or employment would like to collect and assemble backpacks for one of our five sites, please consult our list and email for more details. By giving the gift of brand-new, never-used backpacks and supplies, you have the opportunity not only to boost children’s success in education, but also give them the confidence and encouragement they need to fully participate in all their school activities!
