MANASSAS, Va. – Northern Virginia Electric Cooperative  is collecting new or gently used winter coats, hats, scarves, and gloves for underprivileged children. In addition, NOVEC HELPS, a group of employee volunteers, is collecting new, unwrapped toys and gifts for children in homeless shelters.

“We’re asking Co-op customers and other residents to please donate toys and gifts for tots, tweens, and teens,” says Nan Musick, NOVEC HELPS board of directors’ chairman. “We always collect a lot of toys for little ones, but older children and teenagers appreciate backpacks, board games, books, bath gift sets, hand-held electronics, and socks.”

Donations may be dropped off Monday-Friday, between 8:15 a.m. and 5 p.m., until Dec. 12 at the following address:

10323 Lomond Drive
Manassas, VA 20109
