Toys For Tots collection at Reston Town Center (Photo via RTC)Toys for Tots volunteers are set to accept donations of cash and new, unwrapped toys to benefit children in need at the Reston Town Center Pavilion this week.

Volunteers from United Methodist Family Services of Northern Virginia and local hauling company 123Junk are slated to help collect donations from 1-4 p.m. Friday.

UMFS has support services for children aged 12 to 17 who are at-risk or in crisis. The organization helps advocate for foster parents to take in children who have no capable family members to care for them, and works with families to help them provide for their children.

The organization also operates Leland House, which provides up to 45 days of intervention and stabilization care for children in crisis. Kids receive therapy, education and behavior management, among other services.

“Stop by and enjoy the feelings of the holidays, knowing your gift is making a child’s wishes come true,” Reston Town Center’s website says.
