SERVING OUR COMMUNITY & LOCAL PARTNERS

Mason’s Toy Box is dedicated to improving the lives of families impacted by childhood illness and injury. Children living with childhood cancer and other life-threatening illnesses suffer long-term impacts, and families affected suffer emotional and financial hardship.

Through our partnership we are able to help provide many of the resources families need in their hardest times as a reminder of God’s presence and provision.

Chesterfield County Jail: HARP Program

Addiction levels are at epidemic levels as well as opiate overdoses and opiate deaths. Because Chesterfield Sheriff’s Office recognizes that substance use disorders are not a crime, but a treatable illness, they established the HARP program with a goal of providing inmates with the tools to become and stay sober, ending addiction before leaving jail. Heights has been given the opportunity to serve in a variety of ways, supporting men and women in the HARP program, providing love, support and resources to help grow their faith.

Henrico Corrections and Parole

Our partnership with Henrico Corrections and Parole has a simple motive: to provide people released from jail with essential items that will give them encouragement and hope as they step back into the community. In the process of being released, men and women often come to the parole office without clean clothing, and without food for several hours. Heights has been able to step in to supply new t-shirts, snacks, water bottles and small essentials for men and women to have so that they walk into the community feeling seen and loved and filled with hope for the future.
