One Hundred and One Smiles
Community outreach and volunteerism are key Capital Group values. This Fall, Capital Group held its 2nd Annual Backpack Drive in partnership with Langley Elementary School. Langley Elementary School is a Title I, D.C. Public School (DCPS) located in the Eckington neighborhood of Washington, DC. DCPS Title I school classifications are designated to schools with a majority low-income family community.
Langley Elementary School provides its students with a unique Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math (STEM) curriculum with an emphasis on hands-on, learning methods tailored to each student’s needs. At this year’s Annual Back to School Family Barbecue, Capital Group surprised unexpecting Langley Elementary School parents and students with over 100 backpacks, fully-stocked with essential classroom supplies for the academic school year. The donations made will assist families in reducing financial burdens associated with ensuring their children have the tools and materials needed to aid in a productive, successful school year.
