INOVA Toy Drive

It is that time of year again, the weather is getting colder and students are getting antsy. Halloween costumes and decorations are put away to make room for Thanksgiving, Hanukah, Christmas, and Kwanzaa décor. We are getting into the spirit of the season, here at Sterling Virginia Smiles, and we would like to honor those whose holiday seasons are spent away from the comforts of home. This year, we are collecting donations for INOVA Children’s Hospital. As the only dedicated children’s hospital in Northern Virginia, INOVA is home to the area’s only Pediatric ICU and most comprehensive Neonatal ICU. This holiday season, we hope you will join us in bringing some comforts of home to the children with donations including:

  • Comfort Items: Journals, fleece blankets, baby clothing
  • Toys and Distraction Items: Playing cards, Duplo Lego sets, Matchbox cars, please nothing violent
  • Gift Cards: Target, Walmart, Itunes, Panera
  • Arts and Crafts: Non-toxic colored pencils, markers, crayons, coloring books, craft kits
  • Books: all levels, please nothing religious
  • Electronics: Xbox 360 games E, E10, T; DVD movies PG-13 or less in English, Spanish or Arabic; please nothing violent
  • Care Items: Make-up kids, nail polish, latex free character Band-Aids, travel size deodorant, shampoo conditioner and body wash
