- On Saturday, Dec. 3, from 9-11 a.m., Stone Middle School’s National Junior Honor Society will hold a Panther Drop-Off gift collection. People may drop off donations of brand-new toys, books, games and clothing at the school, 5500 Sully Park Drive in Centreville. Also needed are board games for ages 12 and up; blankets; gifts for teens, such as cologne, makeup, jewelry and gift cards. Donations should be unwrapped.
“Anyone in the community who’d like to contribute can do it here,” said ONC founder Kelly Lavin. “And it’s great for the students to see their community’s generosity.”
In addition, ONC especially needs as many volunteers as possible for gift packaging and delivery days (see below):
