just the facts:
kids and poverty
26% of children in Washington DC, our nation’s capital, live in poverty.
68.2% of students graduated from high school, 15% below the national average.
32,000 children live below the federal poverty line, one of the highest rates in the U.S.
Underwear is only one small part of supporting children who struggle with the many consequences of poverty. 7 pairs of new underwear can increase regular school attendance and boost self-esteem for the neediest among us.
