ABOUT THE NEEDIEST KIDS

The Neediest Kids (TNK), a program of The National Center for Children and Families (NCCF), provides emergency funds to Washington area students in need so they have the basic essentials necessary to stay in school and thrive. The needs include new clothes, uniforms, eye exams, eyeglasses, access to dental/ medical care, school supplies, transportation and more.

The Neediest Kids works with ten Washington area school systems including Washington, D.C. Public and Charter Schools, Archdiocese of Washington, Alexandria City, Arlington County, Fairfax County, Loudoun County, Frederick County, Montgomery County, and Prince George’s County Public Schools.

County, Fairfax County, Loudoun County, Frederick County, Montgomery County, and Prince George’s County Public Schools.

In the past three years, The Neediest Kids has served over 117,358 students in a region where more than 42%, or close to 250,000 students, qualify for free or reduced priced meals (FARMS)— a primary indicator of poverty.

TNK is funded SOLELY by individuals and corporations who see the value in supporting their community.

Your sponsorship of UnCorked! is more than a donation, it allows a child to have a meal over the weekend and provides a youth with a pair of glasses that allows them to see the world clearly.
