Coronavirus (COVID-19) Update

Unfortunately due to the current medical crisis, SAFE has to temporarily stop all donations coming in from our donors.  We are very sorry to have to do this, but at this time for the safety of our volunteers, we cannot accept any donations.  Also, most of our locations we donate to have stopped taking the donations we normally give so we have no choice but to stop taking donations.  

We here at SAFE look forward to the time when this pandemic has passed and we can get back to what we do best, providing comfort for children.  We hope to be back very soon!  

In the meantime, we do have a partner that is accepting right now who would love your donation!  They are Gleaning For The World and they are based out of Virginia.  They help children and families during times of crisis with food, hygiene products and stuffed animals!  They are currently helping the areas hardest hit by the most recent tornadoes and also helping children internationally.  If you would like to help them, please visit our urgent needs page below which gives you all the information on how to donate.

Please stay safe and thank you so much for your support of our organization!
