J.E.B. Stuart High School will host a back to school resource fair on Aug. 19, from 2 – 7 p.m. The fair is aimed to help disadvantaged students prepare for the school year by offering free school supplies, vision tests, haircuts and more.
Stuart will work alongside members of the community such as Bailey’s Crossroads Rotary Club, JEB Stuart PTSA, Fairfax County Department of Neighborhood and Community Services, Islamic Circle of Northern Virginia, Dar Al-Hijrah Mosque, St. Mark Catholic Church and Our Daily Bread.
The organizations involved aim to help students succeed in school by offering supplies and more to students in need. Volunteers and sponsors are still needed. For more information, visit stuartpyramidresourcefair.org.
