Wow! Thank you so much for getting Michael new glasses! He has been without glasses since June, and it has been difficult for him to read what was written on the blackboard which hindered his ability to fully participate in class. He is so excited to be able to see again! "Wow Look!" I can see all the signs!" Michael exclaimed as we drove back to school. He called out every store, food chain and landmark from Laurel to Landover. Many Thanks!

The students at the elementary school were so surprised to receive the new jeans from Neediest Kids. The girls' faces lit up with excitement when they found out that the jeans were a donation and that they could have two pairs each. They were appreciative and thankful for the donation.

Welcome to Neediest Kids!
Imagine being a high schooler struggling to master algebra without a calculator, a third grader who has trouble reading the whiteboard, or a middle schooler without a coat who doesn't attend school when the temperature drops. For a quarter of a million students in the DC Metro area, this is their reality.
But with your support, through its Bridge to Success program, Neediest Kids helps at-risk students get the basic essentials they need so they can get the education they deserve. To enable children to stay in school and succeed in school, Neediest Kids provides:
- Coats, clothing, and shoes
- School supplies
- School uniforms
- Personal care items
- School Fees
- Other necessities

Neediest Kids filled the Carnegie Institute of Washington with sweet treats and happy faces on March 10 at the Second Annual Decadent Delights. 250 people indulged in delicious desserts and wine … and neither the calories nor the fat grams counted because it was all to raise funds to help low-income students get the basic essentials they need to succeed in school.
