Back-to-School Supply Drive Announced

Loudoun County Public Schools students will return to school on Thursday, August 22, 2019. A new school year involves back-to-school costs, which can be challenging even for families not already struggling financially, and for families that do struggle financially, these costs can be crippling.

Beginning now through Friday, August 16th, Sterling District Supervisor Koran T. Saines is holding a Back-to-School supply drive to assist children and families in the Sterling community by alleviating the burden of back-to-school shopping as much as possible. The goal is to remove barriers to learning by making sure that students and families do not worry whether they have the necessary supplies and tools for a new school year, and can instead focus on learning and positive development.

Items collected will be donated to schools in the Sterling District before the school year begins.

Items needed include:

  • Backpacks
  • Writing utensils: pencils, pens, markers, crayons, colored pencils, etc.
  • Paper items: loose-leaf paper, notebooks, index cards, construction paper, etc.
  • Glue and tape
  • Rulers
  • Erasers
  • Binders
  • Safety scissors
  • Cleaning supplies: hand sanitizer, tissues, sanitizing wipes, etc.
  • Calculators

Drop-off locations for items:

  • Sweet Signatures — 22446 Davis Dr. #174
  • Sterling Library — 22330 S. Sterling Blvd., Suite A117
  • Daybreak Kitchen & Biscuit Company/Nectar Cocktail Bar — 22455 Davis Dr., Suite 133
