Thanksgiving Packages for Dranesville Elementary

Each year the Forestville PTA sponsors Thanksgiving Pack for families in need at our sister school, Dranesville Elementary. This will be our 9th year partnering with Dranesville Elementary School in Herndon, who have a significant number of students who receive the “Friday Backpack Program” (food needed at home on weekends). 

This year due to greater need than ever we have been asked to provide donations to 140 families. In the past we have provided donations to 92 families due to the generosity of our community. We hope to continue this tradition therefore we ask you to spread the word to your friends, family, co-workers, clubs, etc. in order to meet the need in our community during this holiday season. 

Please see the list of items needed to support the families at Dranesville Elementary.

Next steps:

1. Sign Up  (please enter your name, email address, and/or group name in the comment box)
