Five years ago this fall, 826DC opened the doors to their first home in Columbia Heights. As a Board member for 826DC, I've seen them win awards, expand their staff, and grow to serve more than 4500 students each year.
Now 826DC is opening a brand new writing center and planning to serve more than 5,000 students this year. Please join me in supporting 826DC and consider making a gift through my fundraising page! Help *Make Magic Happen* by turning DC students into published authors.
826DC is a nonprofit organization dedicated to supporting students ages 6-18 with their creative and expository writing skills, and to helping teachers inspire their students to write. Our services are structured around our understanding that great leaps in learning can happen with one-on-one attention and that strong writing skills are fundamental to future success. This year, 826DC is turning five and celebrating with a campaign to grow their programs, serve 5,000 students, and furnish a brand new writing center in Columbia Heights.
