Hugs Pillows

Assistance League of Northern Virginia reaches out to comfort children of low income families by providing child-friendly pillows.

This past year we distributed 914 heart-shaped pillows with pockets filled with such items  as stuffed animals, toys, crayons, and activity books to several community agencies and many of our partner schools.  We added books to the pillows going to the schools. In grades 2 and below they were used in helping with stress and building self esteem.   Since 1999, we have distributed nearly 13,000 of these pillows.

We give a big thank you to the ladies at Dunbarton community.  They continue to demonstrate their caring for the youngest members of our community by  cutting and sewing these pillows.
