Back to School Drive

As pandemic-era assistance ends, and the cost of basic necessities continues to rise, families across Fairfax County are struggling to make ends meet. That’s why FACETS needs YOU to help us distribute over 500 backpacks to kids in the greatest need. Helping offset the stress of affording back-to-school necessities ensures that the kids we serve can start the academic year on the right foot.

Together, we can help to ease the financial back-to-school burden faced by our families and provide the children with the supplies they need to create stronger futures.
