FACETS Annual Back to School Drive Is Happening Now!

July 7, 2021 in Uncategorized

As the children served by FACETS’ programs return to school, they need your help!  This crisis has highlighted the equity gaps in our community.  Our most vulnerable and marginalized neighbors – those experiencing homelessness, low-immigrants and refugees, the unemployed and low-wage workers – are facing great economic challenges and uncertainty.

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

Our goals is to provide 400 K-12 students in Fairfax County with backpacks filled with new school supplies but we need your help

How can you participate in our 2021 Back to School Drive?

1. Deliver Supplies to FACETS: Download the list of needed school supplies and purchase or collect as many of these items as you can. Supplies can be dropped off at our main office: 10700 Page Avenue, Building B, Fairfax, VA 22030.
2. Make a Financial Donation: Make a tax-deductible donation to FACETS, and we’ll do the shopping for you!
