WHY WE ARE HELPING
At WDG, we know first hand the value of the arts in education. The integration of arts with other curriculum has been proven to create gains in achievement, improve school climate and culture, increase graduation rates, and much more. WDG wants to help the students and faculty of Truesdell achieve these admirable goals.
Truesdell Education Campus
Truesdell Education Campus is a Title 1 school serving a diverse student population. As an urban DCPS campus with almost 600 K-8th grade students, Truesdell empowers their students to “transform into the scholars, citizens, and leaders of tomorrow.” Truesdell works to engage with the community by offering extracurricular, technology, and arts programs.
HOW WE ARE HELPING
The need for art supplies at Truesdell extends from the classroom to the art program, which recently lost its regular teacher due to injury. We have streamlined our donation process to make donating easy and quick. Our Amazon Wish List is listed by hierarchy of need and quantity, and can be ordered with a single click. All supplies will be delivered to WDG and brought to Truesdell at the end of the initiative.
“The importance of art education is indisputable for the students at Truesdell. We’re so excited to be able to foster their creativity and learning with GiveBack DC in order to ensure mastery for all.”
