Help Kids with a Great Start to School Year - CPC School Supply Drive

community_partners_for_children_logoHelp Alexandria kids start off the school year with the right tools and a big smile on ther faces by donating school supplies in bins at many local businesses around town.

Community Partners for Children (CPC) are running their annual school supply drive to help school age children of all ages in need. You can donate any of the following at participating locations: composition books, spiral notebooks, wide-rule notebook paper, pens, pencils, crayons, erasers, scissors, rulers and other items.

You can also attend the Back-to-School Festival sponsored by Whole Foods at John Carlyle Square this Saturday.

Last December, ACTion Alexandria partnered with CPC for their annual toy drive and raised over $2,735! Help CPC meet their goals again - and then some!
