From now through August 16th, the Rotary Club of Ashburn will be collecting school supplies to benefit kids through the Inova Loudoun HOPE Bus and the Rotary Club of Richlands in SW Virginia. Additional supplies will also be distributed to a group going on a medical and supply mission trip to Honduras.

The Inova Loudoun HOPE Bus provides food, clothes, hygiene products, school supplies and medical care to the over 1,100 precariously housed and at risk youth in Loudoun County. The Rotary Club of Richlands serves a community where greater than 60% of students qualify for free or reduced lunch. 

Basic schools supplies and gift cards are needed. A sample School Supply List is available here @

Be sure to lookout for coupons and sales on school supplies in the coming weeks. This week, for example, Staples is selling pads of writing paper for .01 each!

Supplies will be collected at Ashburn Rotary weekly meetings at 1757 Golf Club (45120 Waxpool Rd, Dulles, VA 20166).
