The Des Moines Police Department is coordinating a Toy Drive to benefit the Harborview Center for Sexual Assault & Traumatic Stress (HCSATS).
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.
Toy donations can be brought into the Des Moines Police Department, which is open 24 hours, seven days a week. You can also purchase a toy online and have it shipped directly to the department at:
Attn: Toy Drive
21900 11th Ave South
Des Moines WA 98198
A cash donation can also be made by mailing a check made out to the Des Moines Police Foundation with “HCSATS Toy Drive” in the memo line to the same address.
For additional information or questions, please contact Det. Fred Gendreau at 206-870-7615 or [email protected].
“Thank you in advance for your support of a good cause!”
