Helping Fairfax County School Children

Collect for Kids is a public private partnership that provides local children from economically challenged families with the school supplies they need to begin the school year on equal footing with their peers.

As Simple as A-B-C!

  • Anyone can donate Cash.

  • Backpacks are donated by citizens

  • Calculators are donated by businesses.

More than two dozen local organizations from across Fairfax County raise funds, purchase supplies and stuff backpacks. Their efforts result in help for more than 60% of children who are eligible for free and reduced price lunches.

Dedicated Partners Create Opportunity

Collective buying power allows “Collect for Kids” to turn $1 of donations into nearly $3 worth of supplies. A full backpack is assembled for as little as $20.

Everyone Deserves a Good First Day at School

Collect for Kids brings joy to thousands of Fairfax County kids by allowing them to have a new backpack and supplies just like everyone else!
