Falls Church, VA – According to Human Services, in Fairfax County 9.7 percent, or about 26,000 children (under age 18) live in poverty.  Earlier this month, Nexus Systems held a backpack drive to benefit the poverty stricken children of the local city. From August 1st to August 14th Nexus Systems collected backpacks for the county’s school children.

The backpacks collected at the drive were provided to the school children by the organization, Collect for Kids. Collect for Kids provides local children from economically challenged families with the school supplies they need to begin the school year on equal footing with their peer. More than 35,000 backpacks were distributed in the program’s first three years.

The backpack drive was on a volunteer basis and Nexus employees willingly donated new and used backpacks. If you would like to donate and join Nexus Systems in giving back to the local community, please visit the Collect for Kids’ website here.
