SUMMER — Ready to Learn 2023


We need your help! As students and families enjoy summer break, APAH is collecting donations for our Ready to Learn Drive. Purchasing school supplies for the upcoming school year can be a major financial burden for low-income families. The Ready to Learn program eases this burden and ensures APAH households are #ReadytoLearn.

Spread the word – take a picture of you or your group with your donation, post on social media, tag @Arlington Partnership for Affordable Housing, and use the hashtags: #APAH #ReadytoLearn #BacktoSchool.

View a list of accepted items by quantity and age group. Thank you for your generous in-kind or monetary donations.
