SafeSpace Needs our Help!

SafeSpace Logo

Our friends at SafeSpace have reached out and have asked for help.  We want to do just that, and give them all of the support they need.

SafeSpace Thank you

SafeSpace Children's Advocacy Center of the Gorge is a single point of contact for child abuse victims.  When child abuse is suspected, physical, sexual, or emotional they are referred to SafeSpace. SafeSpace will coordinate with local law enforcement, medical and social professionals so the child only has to tell their story once.  Each time the child has to retell their story they are re traumatized.  
Before SafeSpace these interviews and exams often happened in jails, emergency rooms, doctors offices and the child has to repeat their story over and over again.  Now, children are brought to one location and with technology they only have to tell their story once.  

With your donations and support children are gifted toys, blankets, stuffed animals, backpacks filled with personal care essentials, clothing if needed and of course snacks.  

Some of these children are removed from their home and the only items they have are the clothes they are wearing.  

One SafeSpace employee told us that they wish we could see the joy, and smiles that your donations provide.  They say it really and truly makes a difference.  

Our Toy drive has grown every year, but this is the first time they reached out in need of toys and donations during the summer.  So why not do a "Christmas in July Toy Drive"

Here is how you can help:

1) Cash donation - Follow the link below to their website for direct donation

2) Drop off or mail an item into Gorge Fly Shop, we can deliver to SafeSpace

Here is a list of ideas but keep in mind they serve all ages from birth to 18 years old.

They do request no gift cards/cash with intentions to gift to a child.  

1) Blankets
2) Stuffed Animals
3) Art set, color books with crayons or colored pencils
4) Legos
5) Playdough
6) Puzzles
7) Cards
8) Craft sets
9) Cars/Trucks
10) Lincoln logs

From everyone at SafeSpace and Gorge Fly Shop we appreciate all of your generous donations.
