Thanks to you, Gifting for Families was able to bring some extra holiday cheer to nearly 2,000 children in Northern Virginia this year. Whether you donated, volunteered, or organized a toy drive, we couldn't have done it without you - and we are thrilled that so many families will have a brighter holiday season.
Interested in staying involved? Here's how you can help next year:
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.)
