Toy Drive for INOVA Children's Hospital and Food Drive for the Patriot Pantry

December 10, 2017

During the holiday season, the Staff Senate is collecting new, unwrapped toys for INOVA Children’s Hospital. Donations will be collected from December 1−19.

The Staff Senate is also accepting donations of non-perishable food items, toiletries, and school supplies to benefit the Patriot Pantry.

The last day to donate toys and food will be the day of each campus’ holiday party. Until the day of the holiday parties, use the drop-off locations specified for each campus. 

Drop-off locations:

  • Arlington: Founders Hall lobby
  • SciTech: Colgan Hall lobby and Bull Run Hall atrium  
  • Fairfax: Merten Hall lobby and Johnson Center elevators/entrance facing The Hub

INOVA Children’s Hospital has shared an Amazon Wish List, a Wish List of currently needed items, and their Gift Policies to avoid any items that they cannot accept.

Patriot Pantry has a list of Most-Needed Items. Monetary donations may also be made to the Patriot Pantry via the Student Support and Advocacy Center foundation accounts. Donations made to the Student Food and Housing Insecurity Fund will be used to assist the Patriot Pantry. 

Visit the Staff Senate website for the most up to date information.
