The Fairfax-based nonprofit Britepaths is seeking donations from the community to assist students in need who attend schools in the county as part of its annual Collect for Kids Back-to-School Program.

The goal is to provide supplies for at least 2,500 Fairfax County Public Schools students. Britepaths will provide pre-packaged supply kits to its partner schools for distribution to students with demonstrated need.

The supply kits will be helpful to students whether they attend school on-site or virtually, organizers of the initiative said.

Thanks to a bulk-ordering arrangement, a donation of $25 will provide all the necessary supplies for two students. Britepaths is working to raise $25,000 by Aug. 15.
