What We Do
LHK was started by a kid to help other kids, and our mission is to help elementary-school aged children whose families are experiencing financial hardship by providing them with special items or experiences that they otherwise could not afford.
Why We Do It
To help other kids be happy and encourage the spirit of giving. In the words of our founder, Rachel Harris, “If we fill kids’ buckets then they will, in turn, fill other people’s buckets.”
Who We Serve
We currently serve kids who are age 6 through 6th grade, who live in Northern Virginia, Maryland, and DC, and have been identified as experiencing financial hardship.
As of May 2017, Let's Help Kids has delivered:
827 weeks of summer camp
30 new bikes
102 birthday presents
212 event passes
539 general gifts
