About Mason’s Toy Box
Mason’s Toy Box Foundation is a nonprofit which lends support to families impacted by childhood illness and injury, through gifting and advocacy. Our signature event is a holiday toy drive to collect gifts for hospitalized and homebound children in the fight. Santa and his elves personally deliver the gifts to pediatric floors throughout Central Virginia. Due to new hospital Covid 19 regulations, toy boxes have been swapped out for cash boxes. The funding helps purchase wish list items from merchants and shipped directly to children battling in hospitals and their homes.
Our signature toy drive was established to honor the memory of neuroblastoma warrior Mason Clark Thomas. Mason was a Charlottesville native diagnosed with stage IV cancer at age five. After a long and difficult journey, he lost his battle to cancer June 20, 2011, at the tender age of eleven. Mason spent many holidays in the hospital and was always eager to gift his toys and video games to other kids who he thought could use some cheering up and, perhaps, just needed them more than him. We are many years and several hospitals strong! Want to deliver smiles to pediatric patients and their families with us?
