Book Bag & School Supplies Program


Help give children of struggling Fauquier families a great first day of school

Fauquier FISH has provided book bags of school supplies to children in need for 20 consecutive years now through the Book Bag School Supply (BBSS) program. Fauquier FISH, along with other residents, churches, and businesses sponsor and pack book bags of school supplies that are handed out each summer. There are no qualification requirements for this program. Parents in need simply call to register their children to receive a bag. Each year, the program grows. In the Summer of 2016, Fauquier FISH organized the distribution of 784 book bags of supplies to children in need. While this program is not food-focused, it does align with our desire to service children in our community, recognizing that having adequate school supplies allows children to start out the school year on a positive note.
