Supply Our Schools is Looking For Donations

Posted: August 6, 2003 at 1:00 am, Last Updated: November 30, -0001 at 12:00 am

The annual Supply Our Students collection program is still collecting school supply donations. Sponsored by the College of Visual and Performing Arts, the program distributes new school supplies and new and gently used backpacks to area children who receive free or reduced cost lunches. Fairfax County elementary schools contact Supply Our Students with their wish lists and volunteers discreetly deliver the collected supplies to the children in need.

The student group and office that collect the most supplies by Sept. 5 will each receive a basket of snacks. Each supply counts for one point and the most needed supply, backpacks, count for 10 points.

For more information about the program, to set up a collection box, or to enter the contest, contact Lori Petterson at (703) 993-8887 or
