You don’t have to have big money to make a big difference in the lives of children.
The Children’s Guild invites young professionals to The BoatHouse Restaurant in Canton to help raise money for backpacks for our kids and learn more about our mission. This event is a great opportunity to meet other like-minded, philanthropic young people in Baltimore. Plus, you get to enjoy the beautiful scenery at BoatHouse, awesome appetizers and a drink– all for only $25! Five dollars of every ticket purchased will go toward backpacks for our students.
We provide services for our students to help them feel safe, secure and cared for on a daily basis and we cannot continue to do so without our donors. Regular services include, washing uniforms or providing new uniforms, school supplies, hot meals in school and to take home, gift cards for clothes and groceries, and other basic needs.
In our DC public charter school alone,
