50th Anniversary NOVA Day of Service


Hello NOVA!

As part of NOVA’s 50th Anniversary, and our campus theme of Come Home to Serve…..we are having a packing party for Comfort Cases and you are invited!

Thousands of children in Northern Virginia enter the foster care system each year. Most carry little more than the clothes on their backs. Comfort Cases is on a mission to provide essentials to help these brave children on their journey to find a home.  Comfort Cases would like to request your participation in our Spring Packing Party on May 6th from 10 AM – 12 PM at the Schlesinger Center. Volunteers will assist organizing donated items and preparing cases for distribution.

Please register to attend:

If you can’t make it to the packing party, you can still participate! We are also collecting items to go inside the comfort cases from 4/11 – 5/6/16.

Items can be dropped off at TILT (Bisdorf Building | AA-343), The Women’s Center (Bisdorf Building | AA-331), and The Office of International Students (Bisdorf Building | AA-193).

50Here’s a list of the items needed:
* Back packs, duffle bags or small suitcase
* Stuffed Animals
* Pajamas or athletic pants/shorts & tees
* Hair brush or Comb
* Toothbrush & Toothpaste
* Books
* Travel Size Toiletries
* Activity books & Crayons

Items for children over 10 years old would be especially appreciated.
