Bright Horizons Foundation and Pottery Barn Kids Host Valentine’s Day Benefits

The Bright Horizons Foundation for Children and Pottery Barn Kids are partnering to host a children’s Valentine’s Day card-making project to benefit Patrick Henry Family Shelter in Falls Church. Parents and their children can stop by any local Pottery Barn Kids store between today and Feb. 14 and children will have the opportunity to make two Valentine’s Day cards: One to take home to someone they love, and one to give away to a child in need at the Patrick Henry Family Shelter.

The handmade cards the children create will be given to children at a Bright Space playroom in the shelter. Bright Spaces, an initiative of the Bright Horizons Foundation for Children, are warm, enriching play spaces in homeless shelters and community agencies where children, youth and families in crisis can learn, play together and heal from trauma. Pottery Barn Kids will also donate $1 for every creation shared on Instagram, with the “#pbksharethelove” hashtag.

There are two Potter Barn Kids locations in Northern Virginia – one in Tysons Corner Mall and another in Fair Oaks Mall. For more information, visit brighthorizons.com.
