Recycle stuffed animals, toys, children’s books and baby blankets

STUFFED ANIMALS FOR EMERGENCIESTeddy bears

Stuffed Animals For Emergencies (SAFE) is a 14-year-old non-profit organization run completely by volunteers (chapter members).  They collect various items such as stuffed animals, toys, books and baby blankets to benefit children during emergency situations such as fires, illness, accidents, neglect, abuse, homelessness and even weather emergencies such as tornadoes, floods and hurricanes.  They also donate the items they receive to other childrens organizations, military organizations, libraries and even nursing homes.  SAFE accepts new and gently used items for donation.  This is a great way to reuse and recycle stuffed animals, toys, books and baby blankets that so many people have in their homes and just don’t know what to do with.  When they receive donations they go through and clean the items, freshen them up a bit and then donate them to emergency organizations to be given directly to children in emotional, traumatic or stressful situations.  Your donation can really make a difference for a child when they need it most!
