Holiday shopping for your family? How about picking up gifts for a family in need, too?

Cornerstones is running a Gifts for Kids Drive this holiday season. The Reston nonprofit says it has received personalized wish lists from more than 1,500 children. The organization has already received commitments to fulfill most of the lists, but is still looking for volunteers for the rest.

Simply complete the online donation form and a Cornerstones’ staff member will email you a child’s personalized list containing up to three wishes totaling $50 – $65 per child.

Wishes range from Legos to Barbie dolls, scooters to warm winter gloves.

Know of any other area nonprofits helping others this season (or all year round)? Email [email protected] and we will spread the word.

He embodies grace, positivity and motivation in ways that no one else can. If we could all learn a thing or two from him, the world would be a much better place. He does so much for others, and does so with a smile on his face 99% of the time.

He recently ruptured his Achilles and has an incredibly long and tough journey ahead. As if COVID hadn’t impacted fitness professionals enough, throw this in the mix and it’s a double, even triple whammy.
