|Kids need school supplies whether they're learning in class or online. [Collect for Kids] |
The organization will provide pre-packaged supply kits to its partner schools for distribution to students with demonstrated need. It is collaborating with Fairfax County’s Collect for Kids partnership by purchasing school supply kits from Campus Survival Kits.
Thanks to this bulk ordering arrangement, a donation of $25 will provide all the necessary supplies for two students. Britepaths is working to raise $25,000 by Aug. 15.
Community members can donate funds via Britepaths’ secure online donation page or mail a check to 3959 Pender Drive, Suite 200, Fairfax, VA 22030. Write “BTS” in the memo line.
Donations to Britepaths will provide school supplies to these schools in the Justice pyramid: Baileys Upper Elementary School, Beech Tree ES, Belvedere ES, Parklawn ES. Sleepy Hollow ES, and Glasgow Middle School.
Members of the community can contribute to Facets’ 2020 Back to School Drive in several ways:
- Deliver supplies to Facets. Download the list of needed school supplies and purchase or collect as many as you can and drop them off at the organization’s main office, 10700 Page Ave., Building B, in Fairfax.
- Make a tax-deductible donation to Facets online, or send a check to 10700 Page Ave., Building B, Fairfax, VA 22030. Write “school supplies” on the memo line.
- Purchase school supplies through the Facets School Wish List on Amazon. When you buy from Amazon Smile and select Facets Cares as your charity of choice, a percentage of your purchase price will support the children, families, and individuals served by Facets.
