Invest in Student Success!

Student Chest Drive

The STUDENT CHEST DRIVE is an annual event conducted in all schools this November to benefit the Foundation for VPS. Information will come from your school or you can make an online donation at any time to support students.

For 35 years, the Foundation has supported achievement for all students, leveraging donations and community resources to meet emergent needs quickly and to enrich the lives and learning opportunities for all students. 

Please consider making a gift in honor of your student and their teacher to provide
direct aid to students facing learning barriers due to economic need, as well as funding for learning enrichment and mentoring programs.

Donate online or return the donation envelope sent home with elementary students in early November.

Together we can ensure all students come to school happy, healthy, and ready to learn!

• Your gift of $10 will help one student with basic needs like school supplies or snacks
• Your gift of $25 buys a grocery or gas card for a family in need
