How Can You Get Involved?

The 2019 Collect for Kids campaign focuses on donations of money and new backpack and school supplies.  

Monetary Donations

Our work never stops.  Please donate via the link below.  

The DONATE link redirects to The Foundation for FCPS  - the 501(c)3 philanthropic arm of Fairfax County Public Schools.

All funds raised by the Foundation for FCPS via this link will be used to purchase school supplies and backpacks for students in Fairfax County Public Schools.

New Backpack Donations

Individuals or organizations can deliver new backpacks to any of the following locations:

If your organization is interested in coordinating a new backpack drive for Collect for Kids, contact us and we will guide you on the "how-to's".  Please let us help make a match to a school, since we are coordinating efforts throughout the county.


Please note that students need new and sturdy backpacks.  High school students need larger backpacks that are laptop compatible (must fit an FCPS issued laptop).  Wheeled or drawstring backpacks are not accepted.   


School Supply Donations 


Use the donation wish lists below to help guide donations for these items.  Donations are accepted at all Apple Federal Credit Union locations.  

The Collect for Kids team aims to keep donations as local as possible, but to be efficient a donation from one part of the county could end up elsewhere in Fairfax County.
