Back-to-School Community Day

Aug. 19, 10am – 2pm

Lorton Community Center


Join Mount Vernon District Supervisor Dan Storck, Neighborhood and Community Services, Fairfax County Public Library, Fairfax County Public Schools and more for Back to School Community Day. The event will take place at the Lorton Community Center, Library and Park (9520 Richmond Hwy) on Saturday, Aug. 19 from 10 a.m.-2 p.m. There will be a moon bounce, face painting, free food, school supply distributions, and more fun activities for students and families to enjoy before the start of the new school year.

A special highlight to this event is the Health & Human Services Fair that will include agencies such as the Fairfax County Health Department, Community Services Board (CSB), Inova Health System, Fairfax County Department of Family Services (DFS) and more. These agencies will share information about the services they provide to students, youth and families. They will also be onsite to assist with obtaining public assistance services such as Medicaid, Medicare, SNAP, etc. and there will be Vision and Hearing Screenings provided by INOVA Lions Care and Dental Screenings provided by Medical Care for Children Partnership. The Fairfax County Health Department will also be on-site providing vaccines and assisting with immunization appointments. We will also be joined by the Lorton Volunteer Fire Department and the Franconia District Police Station.

We hope you’ll attend this wonderful event where we will all come together as a community before school starts.
