LHK was started by a kid to help other kids, and its mission is to help elementary-school aged children in D.C., Maryland and Virginia whose families are experiencing financial hardship by providing them with special items or experiences that they otherwise could not afford. Examples include but are not limited to birthday presents, bicycles, books, trips to local amusement parks, dance or sports lessons, art supplies or tickets to see a play.
Manitta joined LHK because she feels strongly that every child deserves to experience joy and laughter each and every day, and to feel special and supported by his/her community.
As a Board Member, Manitta plans to help the organization achieve its fund raising goals and expand its reach to additional communities and children in need.
