More than 26,000 students throughout FCPS that need support were ready for school this September with new school supplies and backpacks -- all because of YOU.
The Foundation for FCPS, with it's Kids in Need / Collect for Kids fund, raised over $21,000 for the purchase of school supply kits and backpacks -- an increase of over 210% from 2017.
Our 13 partners and more than 60 supporters also had successful collection drives to support these students. Of the 60+ supporters, 50 of them were new to Collect for Kids this year.
Imagine over 10,000 backpacks donated, more than 3,000 "stuffed" backpacks assembled, and the basic list of school supplies for almost 13,000 students collected and distributed to the schools.
It was a very busy summer for all, and we are grateful for the tremendous support from our community.
2019 planning has already begun. You'll be hearing from us in a few months...we hope that we can count on you.
