Back to School

Thank You for Helping Our Kids Be Ready to Learn!

Many thanks to all who helped us reach our goal for our annual Back to School campaign. This year is different in so many ways, but we still wanted to provide school supplies to 2,500 students, and thanks to our community's support, that's exactly what we did!

And a big thank you to our Digital Access campaign supporters! We have some great news to share. Britepaths is joining in a new partnership with the Foundation for Fairfax County Public Schools and Cox Communications' Connect2Compete program to leverage a percentage of the donations made to our Digital Access campaign so we can help many more families than we had ever imagined when we launched our campaign in August. We will reserve the remaining funds to assist families who need different options in order to connect.

We're projecting that through this partnership, we'll serve up to 10 times the number of families we originally projected. Thank You!

About Our Program

Did You Know? More than 30% of all children in Fairfax County Public Schools are eligible to receive free or reduced-price meals. Each year, thousands of Fairfax County students 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 this time of national and global crises, families and children in our area who struggle under normal times are needing our help more than ever. 

As we have done for many years, Britepaths participated once again in the Collect for Kids partnership, which includes Fairfax County Public Schools, the Fairfax County Office of Public and Private Partnerships, and numerous community-based organizations and businesses in the Fairfax County area who are working together to provide supplies in a more cost-effective and efficient way. 

Your donations this summer helped us purchase supply kits at a huge discount with the collective spending power of the partnership to be distributed to 2,500 students in need at our FCPS Partner Schools listed below. Thank you!

Having accomplished this huge goal, we have decided as an organization to stretch ourselves further to do what we can to provide Digital Access grants to as many qualified Fairfax County area families as possible. Thanks to a new partnership with the Foundation for Fairfax County Public Schools and Cox Communications, we're leveraging our supporters' donations to ensure that more FCPS students can connect for distance learning. Reserved funds will assist qualified families who need different options in order to connect and will be paid directly to their service provider.

Britepaths is so grateful to our community for helping students in need be Ready to Learn!
