Gearing Up For Back-to-School
Early planning is the key to a Back-to-School drive that supports more than 2,000 students in need.
"It's still early in the summer - why donate today? Some schools don't start until after Labor Day."
Donations for our students are always tremendously helpful - but early donations make our Back-to-School drive more effective. Backpacks are distributed to case workers in early August so that there is time to deliver them to students, and some local schools begin the year as early as two weeks before Labor Day.
Donate today to help NVFS buy supplies. Thanks to special purchasing programs, NVFS is able to buy supplies at a value that beats retail price. If you like the idea of your donation being multiplied - please give by July 22 to ensure your gift is multiplied for the drive! Donate online or send a check made payable to NVFS, with BTS in the memo line, to:
Northern Virginia Family Service
Attn: Back to School
10455 White Granite Drive, Suite 100
Oakton, VA 22124
Please note, should contributions to our Back to School Drive exceed our budgeted need, gifts will be directed to where they are needed most - to help children and families living in poverty throughout Northern Virginia.
