Community members and businesses can help local students start the new school year off on the right foot.
The Dale City Civic Association (DCCA) is hosting its third annual Community Backpack Drive through August 17.
The non-profit will be collecting various items, including backpacks, composition notebooks, glue sticks and pencils.
Those interested in donating school supplies can drop the items off at three locations — Supervisor John Jenkins Office, 4361 Ridgewood Center Drive; Bertha’s Beauty & Barber Shop, 13324 Kirkdale Court; and D.E.P. Copying & Printing Center, 14816 Build America Drive.
Monetary donations and gift cards can also be mailed to DCCA, Back to School Drive, P.O. Box 1822, Dale City, Virginia 22195.
Community members who have questions about the Backpack Drive can contact DCCA Chairperson Patti Beattie at 703-200-3077 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
