Once again, if you are not up for shopping, but you would still like to donate, you can either donate cash to the Human Resources elves who will purchase and donate a gift on your behalf or you can write a check to make a flat donation to “INOVA Children’s Hospital” and put “Child Life Services” in the memo line.  We will collect all check donations and send to INOVA together with the donated toys.
We will be collecting donations from December 5th through December 19th.  Please drop your donations off at the donation box outside of the HR office.
