Event Details

Give a Student HOPE !


In  August and September many children will begin returning to school. For most it is a time of excitement... but for many children in our community, the new school year can turn into extreme disappointment.


Thank you for your consideration in helping us to lend hope to children in need throughout our community. Your donation and contribution would truly make a difference in providing 200 backpacks and school supplies for students in need.  

Join us on tomorrow, August 23th for our 14h Annual Backpack Drive as we provide backpack supplies to students and families in need.

The majority of our back pack recipients are from poor families cannot afford the needed clothes, shoes, or basic supplies for the new school year. They are too ashamed to go to school and if they do attend classes, they don't have the tools to learn.

Sisters4Sisters, Inc. contributes back packs to underserved children in need. While also contributing to students residing in domestic violence Safe Houses, those touched by HIV-AIDS and students in area homeless shelters. Over the past 14 years we have donated more than 20,000 school supplies to the children in area Domestic Violence shelters including The Family Crisis Center of Prince Georges County, The House of Ruth, DC Village (now closed) and Shephards Cove. 

Your gift of back to school supplies and/or monetary donation will give a poor child the confidence and excitement they need to break the feeling of poverty during their educational experience.

Thank you for giving a needy child dignity, hope and a reason to smile!

Very Sincerely,

Carolyn Washington

Founder- Executive Director

PS-  New & Gently Used Uniforms are Appreciated
