6th annual Des Moines Police Department Toy Drive will benefit HCSATS

The Des Moines Police Department, in partnership with the Des Moines Police Foundation, is sponsoring its 6th annual 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.

New, unwrapped toy donations can be brought to the Des Moines Police Department, which is open 24 hours a day, seven days a week. You can also purchase a toy online and have it shipped directly to us at:

Des Moines Police Department
Attn: Toy Drive
21900 11th Ave S.
Des Moines, WA 98198

A monetary donation can be made by mailing a check made out to the Des Moines Police Foundation with “HCSATS Toy Drive” in the memo line to 21900 11th Ave S., Des Moines, WA 98198.

Given the clinical setting HCSATS operates in, storage is limited. If you consider donating a toy, please be mindful about the size of the item and have it to us by January 4th, 2019, so we can prepare to deliver them to HCSATS.

Thank you for your consideration!
