Staff members at King George County schools spend hundreds of dollars out of their own pockets buying supplies for students.
The King George Education Foundation wants to make it easier for students’ needs to be met by the entire community in a central location.
Annie Cupka, president of the foundation board, shared a presentation with the King George County School Board last week about the foundation’s desire to create a place called the FoxSmart Center, where school supplies, hygiene products, clothing, food and instructional materials could be distributed free to students in need.
“The vision here is a one-stop shop for students and families in need, as well as staff members who continue to purchase items for classroom use out of their own funds,” Cupka said.
They hope to kick off the initiative during the coming school year, she said.
