Annual School Supply Drive is Back

Posted on July 22, 2015 at 1:25 PM by OCOM Specialist

Housing and Human Services (HHS) works to build a stronger and healthier community through programs and services that help build better lives for City residents and their families. One of these programs is the annual School Supply Drive.

In challenging financial times, some families in the City have a difficult time stretching already tight budgets to buy school supplies for their children. For more than 10 years, HHS has been helping residents by collecting donations of unused school supplies for local middle and high school students in need.

Some supplies needed include:

  • Backpacks
  • Binders (1”, 1.5”, 2”)
  • Spiral Notebooks
  • Double-pocket Folders
  • Index Cards
  • Pens, Pencils, Markers, Highlighters (no crayons)
  • And more!

If you wish to make a difference by giving something other than supplies, you can also make a donation to the Falls Church City Public Schools Family Assistance Program. The program provides school supplies, holiday gifts, and meals to City families with at least one school age child. Checks should be made payable to Mount Daniel Elementary School with Family Assistance Fund written in the memo area.

Donations can be dropped off in the HHS Office in City Hall (300 Park Avenue, Level G, Room G04) during regular business hours (Monday through Friday, 8 a.m. to 5 p.m.) through August 19.

For more information about the program, call 703-248-5005 (TTY 711) or email
