Support Play Equity and Back to School!

For 17 years, Playtime has worked to reverse the effects of homelessness and racism through the simple yet profound effects of play. Our play curriculum builds problem-solving skills, social-emotional learning, and optimism for the future. In addition, we advocate before the District's city council to make Black children’s needs a priority in a system that already puts them last. 

And every fall, we make sure Playtime children receive brand-new backpacks stuffed with grade-appropriate school supplies so they can start the new school year prepared and confident. Though D.C. Public Schools is starting the year online, children living in shelters still need school supplies—including masks and hand sanitizer—to ensure they have what they need to rise to the challenge of distance learning during the pandemic. 

Playtime strives for equity for Black children experiencing homelessness in our city. Please consider a donation today to ensure children in shelters feel supported, engaged, safe to express their right to play, and ready to get back to school. 

Thank you for making it possible for Playtime children to have a strong start at school and for advocating for equity in children's services.
