"Collect for Kids" Campaign is Gearing Up

It may still be winter outside, but our community partners are hard at work to prepare for the 2018 "Collect for Kids" drive. Last year, we provided school supplies and backpacks to over 39,000 students in FCPS when school began in September, and this year, we aim to do even more.

Check out the new website for more information on how you can directly support this valuable program.

Recognize Outstanding FCPS Employees. 

A pillar of the Foundation for FCPS's support is Employee Recognition programs for some of the 27,500 employees at FCPS. Through monthly celebrations in each region, #FCPSCares recognizes employees at every level, culminating in the star-studded FCPS Honors, on Wednesday, June 6 at 6:00 pm at Mason's Center for the Arts.

Sponsorships are now available. A $5,000 contribution allows a top-level executive in your company to present an award to one of our deserving winners! 

Or you can choose to make a contribution toward this effort in honor of a deserving teacher or employee. More information can be found on the Foundation's website
