2021 Backpack Drive

2021 Backpack Drive
  • We just can't wait to welcome ACPS students back into our school buildings for in-person learning this August. After such an extraordinary year, we also want to make sure that students start off on the right foot by connecting them with essential school supplies and backpacks that community organizations all across Alexandria are collecting and distributing.
