Baltimore City families need your help to afford mandatory school uniforms

Baltimore City Public Schools has seen a strong correlation between student access to school uniforms and student attendance. Starting the school year with new uniforms helps build confidence in students and allows them to focus better on classwork.

To sponsor a student, visit by 5 p.m. on Friday, Aug. 14.

The Johns Hopkins Adopt-a-Student Uniform Drive was established in 2011 to assist families in purchasing the required Baltimore City Public Schools uniforms. Thanks to the overwhelming generosity of the Johns Hopkins community over the past three years, more than 1,800 students have received two new uniforms each.
