Collect for Kids School Supply Drive Stays Online for 2021

July 26, 2021

As we prepare to welcome students back to school buildings for five days a week of learning, many need school supplies so they are prepared to learn. Again this year, Fairfax County Public Schools (FCPS) and the Foundation for FCPS are leading the Collect for Kids effort, a consortium of not-for-profit, for-profit, and government entities coordinating, promoting, and providing school supply drives to benefit FCPS students who otherwise might go without them.   

Nearly 60,000 (34%) of FCPS students qualify for free or reduced-price meals and struggle to afford basic necessities. Your donation will help provide the school supplies these students need to be successful at school. 

This year, building upon the successes of the 2020 virtual campaign, the Collect for Kids effort is continuing with virtual, online-only donations.

Contributions can be made online through the Foundation for FCPS. Donations will be used to purchase bulk school supply kits at highly discounted pricing.
