At HearthSong, we believe it’s just as important to give back to our community as it is to encourage positive play. We believe every child, and every family, should experience joy in everyday life. Whether it’s through donations of toys, money, labor or our time, it’s important to us that we make a difference in other people’s lives at a local, national and even global level. After all, our kids are our future, and even a small act of kindness can make a huge difference. Have a suggestion for new and creative ways to help others?
For more than 70 years, the United States Marine Corps' Toys for Tots program has collected new, unwrapped toys throughout the months of October, November and December to donate to kids of families in need. The toys are then distributed at Christmas to less fortunate children. Through this gift, Toys for Tots hopes to play an active role in ensuring all kids experience joy at Christmas!
For many years now, HearthSong has partnered with Toys for Tots to bring high-quality, active and creative toys to families in need, and we will continue to do so going into the future. Donning our Santa hats, we gather together in our warehouse and happily pack pallets of toys that will bring lots of smiles and giggles!
Childhelp® is a nationwide organization that has been dedicated to helping abused, neglected and at-risk children since the 1960’s. With chapters all across the country, the organization offers a variety of resources, including prevention and education programs for families, teachers and coaches; intervention programs; help hotlines; and residential treatment facilities (villages) which provide abused and neglected kids with a safe haven to call home while they receive the help they need to heal.
The HearthSong® family has donated toys and supplies for art and music therapy to our local Childhelp® Alice C. Tyler Village. These toys allow children a way to express themselves and release negative emotions and experiences. Since 1993, the Alice C. Tyler Village has provided a healing home environment with a community atmosphere for children ages 5-14 years of age. The unique location on a 270-acre working ranch in Culpeper, Virginia creates a variety of therapeutic resources, and each child has daily opportunities to participate in recreational activities such as animal care, horseback riding, hiking, biking, rope courses, team sports, swimming, choir and more. HearthSong is happy to be part of providing healing and meaning to these treasured children!
Founded in 1965 by Lyndon B. Johnson’s War on Poverty, Head Start is a national, government-funded program committed to giving our youngest children from low-income families an opportunity to succeed in school and in life! Offered through local programs, Head Start assists with early learning, whole-body health of the child, and family care and support. Since its beginnings, Head Start has improved the lives of more than 37 million children and their families.
Proud to be able to help and support our local community, HearthSong has donated toys and books to the kids and classrooms at Skyline CAP Head Start.

Located in Madison, Virginia, Skyline offers educational and health services such as medical care, vision, dental and nutrition to more than 175 preschool-aged children from families in need.
As parents, grandparents, PTA officers, kid chauffeurs, and employees of a children’s company, our HearthSong family jumps on the opportunity to spread joy locally any chance we get! Whether it’s through a company-wide competition, individual sponsorship of children and senior saints, or just donning our gloves to clean up our beautiful countryside, HearthSong is ALL IN when it comes to giving back to our community. Here are just some of the ways we love to share:
"Adopting" a child through the Angel Tree program and showering him or her with age-appropriate gifts for Christmas

Stuffing backpacks with school supplies to distribute through our local schools for kids in need
