A new toy is such a small thing, unless you've never had one.
The Virginian-Pilot Joy Fund is a non-profit organization that raises monetary donations from the community to purchase new toys for local children who may not receive a single toy during the holiday season.
In partnership with The Salvation Army, local families in need are identified and invited to personally select toys for their children so that no child in the Hampton Roads area goes without a gift. Last year The Joy Fund bought toys for over 15,000 children.
All administrative expenses are paid for by The Virginian-Pilot -- every penny donated to The Joy Fund purchases toys for the children.
100% of your donation purchases toys for local children.
