The NVFS’ Gifting for Families Toy Drive provides a special holiday gift for more than 2,500 children and their families throughout Northern Virginia. These children and families are current clients receiving services from at least one NVFS Program and are primarily located in Fairfax, Loudoun, Prince William & Arlington counties. The toys are sorted based on age ranges, so each child receives something suited to them and their needs—often this is the only brand-new toy that they receive during the holiday season.
