Three ways you can volunteer with SAFE


Create a SAFE List

One of the things SAFE most needs help with is locating places who will take our donations.  We need to find more places that we can donate to so we can help more children!  If you are interested in helping SAFE in this way, please click the link below to find out more!


Host a SAFE drive

A great way to help SAFE is by hosting a SAFE drive!  This is a one-time event where you collect donations, clean the donations, and then find a place to donate these items.  If you would be interested in hosting a drive, please visit our Drives page of the website by clicking the button below!


Open a SAFE chapter

If you would be interested in helping SAFE year round, and not as a one-time event, we would love you to join us!  Please click the button below to learn more about what is involved in opening a chapter!

How to open a SAFE chapter

1. Download Items Below

Download the items below which give you a much better idea of what is involved in opening a chapter and whether it would be right for you.

If you are interested in accumulating service hours, please download and keep track of your service hours working with SAFE.  You can email at any time and we can sign the document and email it back to you to approve it.

2. Host a SAFE Drive

The first requirement for opening a chapter is to host a SAFE drive.  Having a SAFE drive is a great way to see what opening a chapter would be like but it would be a one-time event.  This will allow you to see if this is something you would like to do year round.  Please visit our drives page by clicking the link below and follow the instructions listed.

3. Open Your Chapter

Once you have read through all the downloads, agree to our requirements, and you have completed your SAFE drive, please let us know by clicking the link below and we can get you started!
