Collect for Kids
School supply and backpack collection effort for students in FCPS
What is Collect for Kids?
Collect for Kids is a coordinated school supply and backpack donation drive for students in need within Fairfax County Public Schools.
Why Collect for Kids?
Providing school supplies and backpacks through Collect for Kids is an exceptional way to support students. Students who begin school with the tools they need are ready to be successful.
Every school in FCPS is touched by need. There are roughly 56,000 students in FCPS that live at or near the poverty level. That’s 29% of the student population.
