For most kids, summer is for swimming, ice cream, nights at the movies, and relaxing with friends and family. But the children we serve at SAFE haven’t always had the opportunity to build happy summer memories.
We believe every kid deserves a happy, fun-filled summer. With that in mind, the SAFE Summer Fun Drive is on now!
SAFE Summer Fun Drive
From May 17 through June 21, SAFE is collecting donations to help the youth we serve forget about where they’re living for a while – to look past what brought them to SAFE – and just be kids.
Many kids in our care haven’t had a summer vacation. Many teens have never gone shopping for a swimsuit that fits their style and body in a way that makes them feel confident.
Will you please consider donating to SAFE’s Summer Fun Drive? Below are a few items to help SAFE kids make great memories, or you can shop our Amazon wish list by clicking here.
- Gift cards
- For swimsuits or play clothing (Walmart preferred)
- Bowling alleys, movies, arcades, theme parks, or water parks
- Group food outings (pizza, ice cream, etc.)
- Sunscreen and Bug Spray
- Barton Springs vouchers
- DVDs and MP3 players with headphones
- Outside games (volleyball, corn hold, sidewalk chalk, etc.)
- New bathing suits (all sizes), goggles, snorkels, pool towels, and other fun swim gear
All donations can be delivered to the SAFE Donation Warehouse on the Grove Boulevard campus located at 1515-A Grove Blvd.
