Thanks for the amazing response to our first-ever Stuffed Animal Drive

You helped us collect a total of 1,230 stuffed animals to donate to Stuffed Animals for Emergencies (SAFE).

Thanks to you, our first-ever stuffed animal drive was a huge success. We collected more stuffed animals than we could ever imagine. In the weeks we held the drive, we saw you come into the branches and leave bags and bags of stuffed animals. Soon into the drive, we thought that our lobbies couldn’t contain more, but you kept donating! If you didn’t get a chance to see a branch in person, check out what they looked like below.

Most of the stuffed animals will be donated to SAFE, whose mission is to provide comfort to children in traumatic or emergency situations through donations of stuffed animals, blankets, books, clothes and baby items. These items are given to children by emergency workers during incredibly stressful events to make them feel safe and cared for.
