Like many things in our lives right now, our Collect for Kids Back to School Program is a bit different this year. We're working to help local students in need be ready to learn to see them through the coming school year at home or on-site.

In partnership with Fairfax County’s Collect for Kids initiative, Britepaths is collecting funds this summer to provide pre-packaged school supply kits to select Fairfax County Public Schools to be distributed to students with identified need. 

Britepaths is committed to helping 2,500 students with their supplies this year. In order to do this, we need to raise at least $25,000 for the supplies. We cannot do this without YOUR generosity. A donation of $25 will help 2 students. Any amount you can give will make a big difference for children in need near you.

    About Our Program

    Did You Know? More than 30% of all children in Fairfax County Public Schools are eligible to receive free or reduced-price meals. Each year, thousands of Fairfax County students face various challenges that no child in our country should have to face. Food insecurity, lack of resources for school supplies, and limited access to appropriate school clothing are some of the very real issues that distract students from meeting their highest academic potential. 

    During this time of national and global crises, families and children in our area who struggle under normal times are needing our help more than ever. While most schools across the country are still uncertain about how the 2020-21 school year will unfold, one message is clear from our local Fairfax County education leaders. Students should prepare for learning to resume, no matter how the circumstances unfold.

    Here's where YOU come in. Each summer, we launch our back to school campaign to raise funds for kids and families who need help securing the basic school supplies. The program is made possible through the Collect for Kids partnership, which includes Fairfax County Public Schools, the Fairfax County Office of Public and Private Partnerships, and numerous community-based organizations and businesses in the Fairfax County area who are working together to provide supplies in a more cost-effective and efficient way. Your financial donations help us purchase supplies at a huge discount with the collective spending power of the partnership.

    This summer, your donations will fund pre-packaged supplies that students can use whether they are learning at home, at school, or both. Britepaths will send the supply packs to our FCPS Partner Schools (listed below), and staff at the schools will distribute them to students in need.

We cannot do this without YOUR generosity. A donation of $25 will help 2 students. Any amount you can give will make a big difference for children who live very near you.
