LearningRx Toy Drive
We are collecting toys for our local Salvation Armies
Bring your Toys by the center and drop them off with Casey or Megan!
LearningRx of Vienna, Va., Reston, Va. Fairfax, Va., Chantilly, Va., Leesburg, Va., and N. Potomac, Md. are collecting toys at their brain-training centers from now through Dec. 24 for the their respective, local Salvation Army facilities. For every five toys that are collected, LearningRx will also donate one of their ‘smart’ brain-building toys to Salvation Army; toys that help build cognitive skills, like memory, auditory, logic, attention and processing speed. For more information, go to www.learningrx.com.
‘Smart’ toys make for the perfect holiday gift; fun, educational, and inexpensive, at less than $20. These toys can help strengthen a variety of cognitive skills to help learn, memorize, process and recall information easier and faster. Some of these games include Balance Benders, Math Dice, Jr., Clumsy Thief, Spot It! and Helicopter Kit. For a full list of smart toy ideas, go to www.magictoybox.org.
“The Salvation Army provides essentials everyday for those in need, and LearningRx wanted to help support those families by providing gifts for their youngest patrons,” said Maureen Loftus, executive director of LearningRx of Reston, Va. and Vienna, Va. “Moms are always seeking that toy that can do a little bit more than entertain their child, ‘smart’ toys infuse brain-building and fun,” said Loftus.
