Hugs Pillows

Community volunteers, who reside at the Dunbarton Oaks community in Bristow, VA, cut and sew heart-shaped pillows with pockets. Assistance League of Northern Virginia volunteers fill them with kid-friendly items such as: books, toys, and stuffed animals. These huggable pillows are taken to a local clinic, which serves low-income families, where they are given to young children undergoing medical procedures.

During the 2016-2017 year, Assistance League of Northern Virginia delivered 943 of the adorable pillows thus putting smiles on the faces of many children. Since 1999, over 10,000 have been distributed helping to bring comfort to many!
