FAIRFAX COUNTY POLICE MARINE PATROL UNIT
presents the 2nd Annual Boaters for Backpacks
PROVIDING BACKPACKS AND SCHOOL SUPPLIES TO FCPS STUDENTS IN NEED!
Thanks to your support, last year the Boaters for Backpacks effort received over 300 generous backpack donations making it a huge success!
This year, we are balancing tradition and safety and we will be accepting all donations online.
FCPD's Marine Patrol Unit will be partnering with local marinas and Vellum Mortgage to collect monetary donations for backpacks and school supplies for the coming school year. According to Fairfax County Public Schools, about 55,000 students may need assistance.
For every $20 donation you make, you will be entered in a raffle for a $300 gas card, courtesy of Vellum Mortgage. There will be three lucky winners! The gas gift cards will be awarded by August 23, 2020.
Donations will be accepted from July 1, 2020 to August 17, 2020.
Donations to the "Boaters for Backpacks" effort are via the Foundation for FCPS, as the Collect for Kids campaign is part of their "Kids In Need" program. The Foundation for FCPS is the 501(c)3 for Fairfax County Public Schools.
The Foundation for FCPS will purchase pre-assembled school supply kids and new backpacks and will coordinate a safe distribution of these items to students in August.
Don't wait. Donate today!
