“Educate Fairfax is an amazing organization supporting both the students and teachers of Fairfax County Public Schools,” Bassam said. “We wanted to help you guys out by donating $2,000 to support 200 students to get their school year started off right by providing school supplies. Continue doing the amazing work you are doing. We can’t wait to see you again.”

Educate Fairfax supports the Collect for Kids effort each by providing basic supply kits , each costing about $10. Easterns’ donation will help Educate Fairfax provide for 200 students in need this year.
