Over the past 10 years, more than 4,500 students have each received two new uniforms thanks to the generosity of Johns Hopkins employees.
Starting the school year with new uniforms and school supplies helps students build confidence, allowing them to better focus on classwork. In addition, Baltimore City Public Schools reports that access to uniforms and essential supplies is linked to improved attendance rates.
In partnership with Baltimore City Public Schools, the Johns Hopkins Adopt-a-Student Uniform & Supply Drive assists families in purchasing the uniforms required for elementary, middle, and high school students. A $50 donation can provide a BCPS student with two new uniforms, plus school supplies, for the upcoming academic year.
