SAFE depends on generous sponsors like you to help create joy and magic every holiday season! We are seeking hundreds of sponsors to search for the perfect gifts and basic needs to grant the wishes of SAFE clients.

 

Sponsor a SAFE Holidays Wish List

You can click here to sign up to purchase the gifts for the adults and families we serve at SAFE! Please email safeholidays@safeaustin.org with any questions.

Shop for the SAFE Shelves

You can help provide last-minute gifts for those who move into shelter at the end of the holiday season, as well as, other basic need items for clients. Often around the holidays, basic need donations dwindle–by shopping for the shelves, you ensure that SAFE has everything our clients need for the first few months of 2022. No need to sign up to select SAFE Shelves items.

 

  • Shop for items from our Amazon and Target lists which ship directly to our SAFE Warehouse.
  • Mail gift cards to SAFE Alliance ATTN: Holiday Program PO Box 19454, Austin, Texas, 78760
  • Deliver or mail larger gifts to our SAFE Warehouse at 1515 Grove Boulevard, Austin, TX, 78741 · Need more ideas? Click here to check out our SAFE Shelves list.
  • Please email inkind@safeaustin.org if you would like to set up a drive for SAFE

Make a monetary donation

Making a donation directly to SAFE will enable us to direct resources where and when they are needed most–whether it’s holiday gifts, funding for counseling, housing support, or so much more. Donate online or mail checks to The SAFE Alliance ATTN: Holiday Program P.O. Box 19454 Austin, TX 78760.

Volunteer

We will be accepting volunteers this year! If you are interested, please reach out to safevolunteer@safeaustin.org.
