The House DC's 2nd Annual Candy Corn 5k - VIRTUAL

Donation Goal: $5,000

Our House DC kids were significantly impacted in 2020 not only by the pandemic but also by the civil and social inequality unrest affecting our country.  Despite these challenges, we are confident in the bright futures for our kids.  We had a 100% graduation rate this spring, and we continue to provide an "online lifeline" to our kids with activities and connections daily.  Several safe and social-distancing outings provided an opportunity for social connection where youth received encouragement and support.  The House DC also participated in community Prayer Walks throughout Anacostia in support of social justice through the community.

NOW MORE THAN EVER, it is time for all of us to do what we can to support those that have been marginalized for far too long.  We must recognize that each and every one of our precious Black Lives Matter.  Every kid - EVERY KID - in Anacostia is deserving of the chance to have a happy, healthy life and a successful future.

What would your donation cover?

$25: Target Gift Card:  The House DC is providing Target gift cards to our students so that they can make their "home school" space a bit more comfortable.

$50:  House Kid Giant Food Gift Card:  The House DC provides food for House DC kids and their families.  One way is to provide $50 Giant Food gift cards to our Kids and their families.

$100:  Covering the utilities for a House Kid's family for one month:  Utilities are often turned off in our Kid's households.  Now that our Kids are taking virtual classes, we need to make sure they have electricity and other necessities so that they are able to be comfortable living and studying at home.

$250:  Provides a House Kid internet access, school supplies and technology for one semester:  The House DC is providing necessary support to their students during Covid 19 shutdowns.  Most of our kids do not have internet or phone service in their home, and most of them do not have access to computers or school supplies.

All donations benefit the House DC's general operating fund.
