News Release
October 30, 2019

The 2019 Collect for Kids campaign exceeded its goals by supporting over 27,000 students with donated backpacks or school supplies.


Collect for Kids strategic team members and more than 80 supporting organizations worked together to bring thousands of school supplies and backpacks to students. Apple Federal Credit Union was key to the success of this year’s campaign by hosting collection boxes at each branch location.  

 
Donations to the Foundation for Fairfax County Public Schools (FCPS) for its Kids in Need-Collect for Kids campaign raised more than $28,400 in 2019.


The Collect for Kids’ strategic team--comprised of not-for-profit organizations, for-profit organizations, and government agencies--work together each year to support students by collecting and distributing school supplies and backpacks to FCPS students.  


The Foundation for FCPS directly supports the Collect for Kids campaign by collecting monetary donations from the community that are used to purchase additional school supply kits.
