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.
