As part of IMTC Outreach, we did a backpack collection drive in August. This was to support an organization called Collect for Kids. Collect for Kids is a coordinated school supply and backpack drive for students in Fairfax County Public Schools (FCPS).
With the support of our IMTC family we collected 50 backpacks and 5 families donated directly to the organization.
We were then assigned Providence Elementary School in fairfax as the recipient of the backpacks. We, with Alex Achen, visited the school and donated the backpacks personally. We also met with the social workers at the school and discussed their need and how we could support them in the future. There are a very high percentage of kids who are food insecure and in need of basic school supplies. This donation goes a long way in helping such kids and their families as they start this school year.
Please see the attached thank you letter and a picture from our meeting.
Thank you all for making a difference.
