My Job Bags

While the Coronavirus pandemic has closed schools in Arlington, children across the county continue to learn from home. Unfortunately, not all families are able to provide their children with the resources that they would have in a classroom setting. That's why we've established the My Job Bags campaign. A child's 'job' is to imagine, create, learn and play. We're working to assemble bags for children in need and to provide them with supplies to learn and be creative while at home. We're accepting monetary donations as well as donations of the supplies below that will be included in the bags. All money collected will be used to purchase supplies and the bags will be assembled and distributed by volunteers. Each bag will contain:

- Crayons
- Pencils
- Pencil sharpener
- Spiral Notebook
- Construction Paper
- Blunt tip scissors
- Glue stick
- Dry erase board, marker and eraser
- Children's book
- Legos
- Bubbles

Through bulk purchasing we've been able to lower the cost of supplies for each bag to approximately $7.50 per bag.
