We're excited to announce that Little Hands Virginia is moving to a newly renovated expansive 6,500-square-foot warehouse in June 2024. This isn't just a bigger space – it's a crucial step forward in our mission to ensure no child in our community goes without essentials for a healthy, happy start in life.

To make this transition even more impactful, your donation will be doubled thanks to a $50,000 matching grant from the Cabell Foundation. Make a gift today to help secure this match and create brighter tomorrows for children in need!

 

Help Little Hands Virginia take its First Steps!

Over the past five years, Little Hands Virginia has grown to serve nearly 1,000 children every month, providing essential items like diapers, clothing, and formula to families in need. These small items make a world of difference for struggling families. They alleviate stress for parents and allow babies to thrive in a safe and healthy environment.

Meeting this demand is a big challenge - we're bursting at the seams! We need more room to efficiently store and distribute these vital items, and to keep our volunteers safe. Additionally, we need to grow our team to manage inventory, outreach efforts, and serve even more families effectively.

To address these needs, we're launching our First Steps: Building Brighter Tomorrows campaign to raise $1.3 million. This funding will enable us to move into a new, spacious warehouse, grow our team, and ensure our role as the region's trusted diaper and essential resource partner.

Will you join us in building brighter tomorrows where every child has a safe and healthy start? 

Your support will be a giant step forward and will be matched dollar-for-dollar, up to $50,000, by the Cabell Foundation.
