Passengers who bring new, unopened school supplies (i.e. backpacks, notebooks, lunchboxes, etc.) will receive a free ride on the DASH bus system. Passengers are requested to place their donation in the special blue bags located at the front of the DASH bus.
The Alexandria Transit Store located at 1775 C Duke Street in Alexandria is also one of the collection sites for the school supply drive. Should riders wish to make additional donations, there is a collection box at that location until August 16th.
