Each year, thousands of students in the Fairfax County area 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 the pandemic, children and their families have needed our help more than ever.

Britepaths is part of Fairfax County's Collect for Kids partnership, which harnesses community resources to provide supplies to as many Fairfax County Public Schools students in need as possible. Thanks to our partnership with Campus Survival Kits in Herndon, it is easy and affordable to provide the most-needed supplies in a format that makes it simple for school staff to distribute to students.

Your support for Britepaths' Back to School Program this summer will ensure that students in our community start off the school year ready to learn. Thank you for helping our kids!
