Did you know that over 53,000 FCPS students are living in poverty and cannot afford basic school supplies or backpacks?
Collect for Kids brings together nonprofits (including the Foundation), government, businesses, and faith-based groups in an effort to provide necessary supplies to students across Fairfax County. Collect for Kids can turn $1 into $3 dollars of school supplies and provide a student with a new backpack filled with school supplies for about $20.
Here's how you can get involved:
1. MAKE A DONATION through our online portal and designate the funds to Collect for Kids!
2. Conduct a BACKPACK DRIVE at your business!
3. Assist with a resource fair or distribute supplies!
Let’s be sure every student starts school with the tools they need to be successful!
