Des Moines Police Department holding Toy Drive, seeking help


The Des Moines Police Department is holding a Toy Drive for the Harborview Center for Sexual Assault and Traumatic Stress (HCSATS), and they’d like your help.

Among the many other things they do, HCSATS provides examination, interview and therapy services for children who are the victims of sexual assault and other abuse or traumatic incidents.

The gift of a small toy, blanket or stuffed animal during their visits may bring some joy to their otherwise stressful and unpleasant situation.

“Thank you for your support,” they said.

For more information or questions, please contact Detective Fred Gendreau at 206-870-7615 or fgendreau@desmoineswa.gov.
