Gifting for Families
Every December, Gifting for Families brings some extra holiday cheer to nearly 2,000 children in Northern Virginia, thanks to the generosity of the community! Whether you donate, volunteer, or organize a toy drive, it can't happen without you. Help local, low-income families have a brighter holiday season!
Monetary contributions and online donations help us the most. Your early donation will enable us to purchase gift cards and distribute them to our clients before the holidays so that they may use them for holiday meals and basic necessities.
A suggested toy list is provided for your convenience. New toys for children of all ages are needed to stock our Toy Closet. (If possible, please shop for infants/toddlers or teens, as these age groups can be overlooked.)

Please note that we are in the same shopping center
as in years past but in a different storefront
(less than 500 feet away).
Volunteers are needed December 12 - 16 to receive, sort and categorize gifts by age group, and assist case managers as they "shop" for toys for their clients. To sign up for a shift, please contact Navara Cannon at firstname.lastname@example.org or 571.748.2536.
Gifts Cards in suggested multiples of $25 are also appreciated. Target and Wal-Mart gift cards provide the most flexibility for our clients who can use them for food, necessities, and clothing or holiday purchases. Supermarket gift cards are also accepted.
Gift cards and donations paid by check (please make payable to "NVFS" and indicate "Holiday Programs" in the Memo Line) should be delivered before December 11 to
