Why Support Collect for Kids

50,670 Students in FCPS are Eligible for Free or Reduced Priced Meals

Collect for Kids is working to efficiently provide students with the school supplies necessary to succeed. We can turn $1 into $3 dollars of school supplies and provide a student with a new backpack filled with school supplies for about $20.
