Western Fairfax Christian Ministries backpack collection drive is ON!
How Can YOU Make A Difference In The Life Of A Child?
Every School in Fairfax County Has Students in Need - and YOU can help!
Over 55,000 children in Fairfax County Public Schools receive free or reduced-price meals. For these families, the prospect of purchasing backpacks and supplies their children need to start the school year is stressful, especially when they are struggling with basic needs.
WFCM is partnering for the eighth year with Collect for Kids in a county-wide effort to ensure the neediest children in our community receive the supplies they need to succeed in school. Please donate a new backpack (preferably large size, no characters or company logos, with padded straps and reinforced bottom) for WFCM's Backpack Program. We will get it to one of the 24 elementary, middle or high schools where it's needed most. (Please note: Costco has a High Sierra backpack on sale through July for $16 each.)
Backpacks can be donated at WFCM Monday-Friday, 9am - 2pm, or to many churches collecting on our behalf. WFCM is located at 4511 Daly Drive, Suite J, Chantilly, VA 20151.
Thank you in advance!
