Cornerstones Backpack Drive August 9-13

Help to prepare young minds for another successful school year

Cornerstones will once again host its annual Back-to-School Drive to support under-resourced students in Herndon and Reston schools. Your support will help us to provide 14 local schools with backpacks for kids to start their 2021-22 school year. We will also be accepting $25 gift cards for Target and Walmart to allow over 300 children to buy new shoes for the school year.

Backpacks can also be dropped off at the hallway counter by August 10, or at Cornerstones’ Main Office, 11150 Sunset Hills Road, Suite 210, Reston, VA 20190 on the following schedule:

Monday, August 9 through Friday, August 13
9:00 AM – 4:45 PM

Please note that all backpacks must be brand new and should not include wheels or corporate logos.

We need backpacks for children in all grades. Please use the following guidelines for your contribution:

  • Elementary School Backpacks – 13” H x 9” W x 7” D
  • Middle School Backpacks – 16” H x 11” W x 8” D
  • High School Backpacks– 19” H x 12” W x 9” D (our greatest need!)
