We Deliver Smiles


Mason’s Toy Box Foundation is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization which lends support to families engaged in pediatric medical life-altering struggles by offering gifts to hospitalized children (and their family members). We provide relief to families facing overwhelming emotional and financial burdens.

Our signature event is an annual holiday toy drive in memory of Mason Clark Thomas who was taken from us by Neuroblastoma at 11 yrs. old. Mason loved to give his own toys and games to kids he shared a floor with, especially if they had a painful day or received bad news. It was his nature to give to whomever he thought might need that little bit extra. To his credit, Mason’s Toy Box Foundation now serves patients residing in pediatric hospitals, hospitality houses, and even in-home care throughout Central Virginia. This operation has grown to accept and deliver THOUSANDS of toys for children who have to call these places “home” for the holidays and requires HUNDREDS of volunteers.

Here's Payton. She is a ball of sunshine and optimism despite the unrelenting demands of her diagnosis: Periventricular Leukomalacia Cerebral Palsy. PVL CP requires constant therapy and treatment to preserve and maintain Payton's intellectual ability and overcome her body's spasticity that damage to her brain is causing.

And when Jakes Tire Shop in King William learned that Payton's unable to get to her appointments because the family car is in great disrepair, they offered to fix what needs fixing for a nonprofit price via Mason’s Toy Box.
We needed to provide Payton's mommy a rental vehicle so the family won't be without transportation while the work is being done. Once again, Carter Myers Automotive stepped up to help another MTB family and provided a vehicle for them to drive until repairs are complete. Your contributions are what make this possible! Please consider making a one-time or ongoing donation to Mason's Toy Box Foundation online at masonstoybox.org today. We need your help to get Payton's family through this discouraging setback. Let's deliver smiles today - and every day - for Virginia's pediatric patients and their families. Thank you for lending a helping hand with Payton's treatment. ❤

Three things about Henry: He's adorable, he's in treatment for Neuroblastoma, he's worth every effort.

With your help we are able to purchase a jogging stroller to give him more time in the fresh air, new clothes, and other simple needs that will help Henry's family as they take the best care of him as they make the most of their time together.

Please consider making your online donation in Henry's name at masonstoybox.org - together we deliver the sweetest smiles all year long. <3
