Please help some of DC's most vulnerable young children get a leg up! With a modest donation, we can better ensure the Bright Beginnings 2016 5K is a huge success! Bright Beginnings, Inc. is an early education program for homeless infants and toddlers within Washington, DC. Currently, Bright Beginnings serves 40 percent of DC's homeless children. Bright Beginnings, Inc. relies on private fundraising efforts to provide homeless children with scholastic success.
Annually, the Junior League of Washington contributes to Bright Beginnings, Inc. through its sponsorship of a 5k race, an integral fundraiser for Bright Beginnings' continued operations. Any donation you can provide is altruism that will go far in helping some of DC's most vulnerable children and families achieve their full potential.
In addition to educating young children, Bright Beginnings' facilitates homeless parents' advancement and independence through job skills trainings and sponsorship of Bright Beginnings' children through the Junior League of Washington's Christmas Wish List. On top of providing a promising education, your financial gift will foster a sense of community for Bright Beginnings' children who consider their school "home."
