I am involved with the Loudoun County school system and I've learned the most effective way to help out is to connect with a schools parent/teacher liaison. I run a local group called Project Supply Supplies and we have helped out several schools and shelters by providing them with school and art supplies. I learned recently that most of the teachers in our county have a very limited amount of supplies at the beginning of the school year. We connect with the community and have had several paper and supply drives that have been quite successful. I worked directly with the parent/teacher liaison and they were very appreciative. You can also connect with the schools PTA, they will point you in the right direction as well.
