Thanks to the Fairfax County Times for helping us get out the word about our Back to School drive! We're seeking donations of funds for supplies and new backpacks through August 1 to assist 2,500 local students in need. Donate and see backpack drop off locations at britepaths.org. https://www.fairfaxtimes.com/articles/people_and_places/people-and-places---week-of-july-8-2022/article_e2fc1460-fe2d-11ec-a13f-f7893882ecb9.html
"Bullying, harassment, and discrimination are wrong. We should all be kind, and treat one another the way we want to be treated. However, public schools cannot compel students to behave in a way that is 'kind' by punishing them for refusing to ascribe to beliefs they fundamentally disagree with." Excellent piece by FAIR Attorney Leigh Ann O'Neill in the Fairfax County Times ⬇️ https://www.fairfaxtimes.com/articles/opinions/it-is-not-for-the-government-to-decide-which-beliefs-are-acceptable/article_776541b4-e829-11ec-97cc-3b2c916c0ff1.html
Great article in the Fairfax County Times about our wonderful volunteer financial mentor Deidra Lynn Reid, who was recently on Wheel of Fortune, and why she loves to volunteer with Britepaths and the Financial Empowerment Center at South County. Thanks to reporter Jaya Patil for her Positive Vibes profile. https://bit.ly/3MBon2m In 2019, Deidra mentored our client Eva, an empty-nester who suddenly needed to care for her grandson. Deidra noted in the article that Eva has now adopted him, and we're so happy for them. Learn how Deidra's mentoring helped Eva get a handle on her finances so she could raise her grandson: https://britepaths.org/story/eva.
