Lunches & Laptops: Back to School Drive

Wednesday, August 12, 2020 | 11:00am

Join Washington National Cathedral as we partner with United Planning Organization to support children and families throughout the District of Columbia as they prepare for the upcoming school year. As teachers and families prepare for the year ahead, we are coming together to make sure every student, no matter where they are learning, is prepared to succeed. We are collecting items to make at-home learning the best possible experience for all students. We are also accepting non-perishable food donations for healthy snacks, breakfast items and lunches (meals normally provided for at school).

The Cathedral is proud to partner with United Planning Organization (UPO) as part of outreach opportunities. Since 1962, UPO has focused on changing lives—supporting and inspiring Washington, DC’s low-income residents on their journey to self-sufficiency and success. This drive will be in conjuncture with our Red Cross Blood Drives. Learn more about the Cathedral’s outreach at https://cathedralorg.wpengine.com/online/support-neighbors/
