Chapters
Please scroll down below for a complete list of our
SAFE chapter members


This page lists all of our SAFE chapter members (which are our volunteers who collect the stuffed animals, clean them up and then donate them to organizations dealing with children in emotional or traumatic situations).  This page is designed to show you based on your location the closest place to donate.  We do have one contact in Texas that you would have to clean the gently used donations before sending them and our guide to cleaning donations is below:

SAFE Stuffed Animal Cleaning Guide

Please scroll down below to see the list of chapter members we have alphabetically by state.  You can then contact the chapter member and find out how to donate directly to them.  All of our chapter members are volunteer so please be patient in allowing them to respond.  Please give them at least one week to respond to your inquiry.  If you have not heard from them in that time, please contact Jennifer, the National Director of SAFE, at help@safe-inc.org and I will get in touch with them for you and let them know you are having trouble communicating with them. 

Also, our chapter members are entirely volunteer so they are not obligated in any way to pick up donations.  If you and the chapter member are close in distance and are willing to meet or if the chapter member volunteers to pick up your donation, that is entirely up to them, PLEASE DO NOT EXPECT IT THOUGH.  They are volunteering their time to be a chapter member and therefore they can only do what they are comfortable with and are able to do. 

Mailing Donations

If you are unable to find a SAFE chapter member near you, and you are willing to mail your donation, please feel free to contact any of the SAFE chapter members listed below to donate directly to them.

'Opening a Chapter' page for more information and to find out if it is right for you.

Thank you so much for wanting to donate! 
Your donation can make a real difference in the life of a child in a stressful situation.
 





Types of Donations SAFE Accepts

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 and stuffed animals with past years sewn in them.  We also accept blankets, children's books, coloring books and crayons, clothing for children, and baby items.  Not all chapter members accept all items though, please check their individual listing for more information.

WE DO NOT accept battery-operated stuffed animals, toys or dolls.

Thank you so much for wanting to help and sticking to these guidelines.  We appreciate your help!
