Helping children feel SAFE when they need it most!
All donations received go directly to children in need,
your items are never sold!
How you can help!
You may donate your new and gently used stuffed animals, books, blankets, children's clothes, and baby items via our where to donate page or you can make a monetary donation below.
We are in the process of applying for our 501c3 status right now and we will update the site as we progress. All monetary and in-kind donations to SAFE will be tax deductible pending the approval of our 501c3 application sometime around December 2014.
Thank you so much for your support!

SAFE accepts new or gently used stuffed animals to be given to children in need. If the stuffed animals are gently used they need to be in 'like new' condition and free of any tears, stains or odors. We accept any size stuffed animal as well as many of the popular brands such as Beanie Babies, Webkins and Build-A-Bear. We also will accept character stuffed animals such as Mickey Mouse.
WE DO NOT accept battery-operated stuffed animals, toys or dolls.
Also, we accept new and gently used books, coloring books, crayons, blankets, children's clothes, and baby-related items.
If you would like more information about where to donate your stuffed animals, please visit ourwhere to donatepage. Thank you so much for wanting to help and sticking to these guidelines.
We appreciate your help!

Stuffed Animals For Emergencies (SAFE) is a 17-year-old non-profit organization run completely by volunteers (we call them chapter members). We collect various items such as stuffed animals, books, coloring books, crayons, blankets, children's clothes, and baby-related items to benefit children during emergency situations such as fires, illness, accidents, neglect, abuse, homelessness and even weather emergencies. We clean the donations and then give them to fire and police departments, children's organizations, churches, and homeless shelters just to name a few. We accept new and gently used items for donation. This is a great way to reuse and recycle items that so many people have in their homes and just don't know what to do with. Your donation can really make a difference for a child when they need it most!
Currently we have 17 chapters throughout the United States. Please visit ourwhere to donatepage to find a chapter in your area or one of our many partners we work with in order to donate.
