From July 26th – August 12th, 2022 we held a School Supplies Drive at DLS Rosslyn. During this drive, our community of instructors, staff, and students brought necessary items to our collection boxes.
There were three boxes in our office to drop off supplies needed at one local elementary school, one middle school, and one high school. For the members of our community who live out of state, we provided an Amazon list, which they could use to send supplies directly to Rosslyn.
The goal of this supplies drive was to give back to local D.C. schools ahead of the busy back-to-school season. We specifically chose schools in our community to ensure that every student has an equal opportunity to have school supplies that will help them succeed. As we know, education is one of the most important factors in a child’s life. So, it’s important that every student has an equal and equitable opportunity to succeed. At DLS, it’s important for our staff members to give back by donating their time to charitable causes.
