An annual toy drive in remembrance of Mason Clark Thomas, who fought a rare childhood cancer (stage IV neuroblastoma) and lost his battle June 2011.

Mason and his mom spent many holidays in the hospital while he was sick. We collect toys in his honor to brighten the faces of all who are fighting to survive the holiday season.

Not all children will be at home with their family for the holiday season. Some will be in a hospital fighting for their lives, or recovering from an illness, and their parents will be right by their side.

Donate new, unwrapped toys, parent care packages, gift certificates or make financial contributions through paypal under email masonstoybox@gmail.com

Please consider donating an unwrapped gift for a child at any Mason’s Toy Box location. A full list of generous businesses from, Charlottesville to Richmond, can be found here: https://www.facebook.com/MasonsToyBox

If you would like to become a toy drop location and put Mason’s Toy Box in your home or office, it is easy to do! Contact masonstoybox@gmail.com for our official flier and care instructions. And remember, we do this every year for Mason. Read about Mason’s journey: www.caringbridge.org/visit/masonthomas
