Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, our Annual Candy Drive will be held virtually this year! We are grateful to our amazing community, who contributed 18,000 pounds of candy to Mattie Miracle in 2019.
We are requesting donations of candy in its original store bought vacuum sealed bags. Opened bags of candy will NOT be accepted this year. Therefore, PLEASE DO NOT SORT THE CANDY!
To make donations easier, we have created an Amazon Wish List. Click on the link below to check out our list. All items should be sent to the "Ali Goldwater Gift Registry" address. In addition, once you add items to your shopping cart, you can change the quantity of items ordered in that cart.
We are also accepting candy (in its original store bought vacuum sealed bags) drop offs in Arlington, VA.
Drop off dates and times:
Sunday, November 1 (10am to 4pm)
Monday, November 2 (10am to 4pm)
Tuesday, November 3 (10am to 4pm)
Wednesday, November 4 (10am to 4pm)
Thursday, November 5 (10am to 4pm)
Friday, November 6 (10am to 4pm)
Saturday, November 7 (10am to 4pm)
Sunday, November 8 (10am to 4pm)
Mattie Miracle collects this candy and donates it to 7 hospitals and 10 non-profit organizations that assist children with cancer and others in need. Specifically at MedStar Georgetown University Hospital (Washington, DC) and Children's Hospital at Sinai (Baltimore, MD), the candy helps to stock a free snack/item we operate to assist families caring for children with life threatening illnesses. Candy is highly sought after and considered almost a necessity to help families manage through the long hours of caregiving.
