On Aug. 15, Alexandria Transit Company (ATC) will partner with Alexandria City Public Schools and Community Partners for Children for the annual back-to-school supply drive. The school supplies will be distributed to students at the ACPS Family and Community Engagement Center’s annual Back to School Family Night at T.C. Williams High School.
Passengers who bring new, unopened school supplies (i.e. backpacks, notebooks, lunchboxes, etc.) will receive a free ride on the DASH bus system. Passengers are requested to place their donation in the special blue bags located at the front of the DASH bus.
The Alexandria Transit Store located at 1775 C Duke St., Alexandria, Va., is also one of the collection sites for the school supply drive. Should riders wish to make additional donations, there is a collection box at that location until Aug. 16.
