News 3's Holiday Helpers campaign returned this year to help families and children in local shelters. We collected monetary and toy donations from November 26 through December 10.

All the money raised benefits ForKids Virginia and other local charities helping moms, dads and children in need.

Thank you to everyone who donated this year! We are still counting all the donations but so far we have raised a total of $11,282.24 in monetary donations for Holiday Helpers. This number does not include all of the toys that were donated as well.

Thank you to everyone who participated this year and made a difference!

People were able to drop off toys at:

  • Any Southern Bank location
  • ForKids in South Norfolk and Suffolk on Constance Road
  • At Pembroke Mall - Front entrance by Coastal Edge, in front of Kohls, in front on Target, in Center Court

Sponsors helping make this campaign a reality included Southern Bank, Esprit Décor and One Hour Heating and Air Conditioning and Pembroke Mall.
