PROJECT STUDENT SUCCESS:  BFA FAIRFAX
(From Lea Wimette)

"One of the first steps to student success is student preparedness."

Recently I learned of a community rallying to support their children in need of school supplies for the upcoming school year. It occurred to me that we have some of those same needs right here in our own Fairfax community. This Project Student Success is a call for help to provide school supplies for those students / families in need.

If you are willing and can help, any school supplies would be greatly appreciated. If you would like ideas, there are specifics listed below, items originating from lists that teachers have provided for children returning to school. If it makes sense to you that a child might need it at school, it's probably a good idea, even if it isn't listed here!

Also listed below are the number, grade level and gender of known homeless children we have in our community. It would be fabulous to be able to give new backpacks to some or all of those children.

COLLECTION LOCATION
