Kids Helping Hopkins

Kids Helping Hopkins

Founded in 1994, the Kids Helping Hopkins program provides students of all ages the opportunity to learn the importance of helping others without personal gain while nurturing life-long values: compassion, respect, citizenship, leadership and philanthropy. Each year, the students, teachers and staff who participate in the program are encouraged to host their own fundraising events, held in the classroom or out in the community — from dances and food drives to talent shows, games and contests — all benefiting Johns Hopkins Children’s Center. Unrestricted funds raised for the Children’s Center help pay for the needs of children and their families and support our numerous special services.

Learn more about the ways that you and your classmates, friends, and community members can help the Johns Hopkins Children’s Center deliver the care to children around the world.
