As we enter the Holiday Season, we are again extremely honored and excited to announce that we are hosting our 5th Annual Gorge Fly Shop Toy Drive. This drive directly supports our local non-profit SafeSpace.
is the Columbia River Gorge's only nonprofit that coordinates the efforts of child protection staff
, law enforcement professionals
, family advocates
, medical experts
, and mental health clinicians
under one roof. Providing comfort and support to children who have been abused, witnessed abuse or have been neglected.
Our goal is to raise money and provide donations to them that will be handed out to children while they are receiving treatment. Children who make it to SafeSpace
have experienced trauma that children should never have to experience and with your donations and support it will provide comfort during this time.
What is needed this year
, please ensure these are new and unused and at the request of SafeSpace
, Blankets - soft, fuzzy or fleecy type, backpacks are fantastic, and stuffies - beanie babies are not needed this year, but kids like larger sized stuffies, more toys or crafts geared towards teens. They don't have much for that age group.
By making a donation
, we at Gorge Fly Shop are gifting you 10% off of your order
) this discount is given at the time we receive your donation.
There are many ways to donate to our Toy Drive:
- In Person - bring in a donation and receive 10% off of your in store purchase.
- Delivery - Send in a donation and once received we will contact you to place your order with your 10% Discount. We will process your order as we normally would with the discount. Please ensure that you send in your donation to provide your contact information.
- Cash Donation - This is another way to provide support, please contact us with any questions.
Looking for a bigger way to offer support, right now SafeSpace
is running a campaign to raise money for a new space as they can no longer stay in their building and need to look for a larger place to call home. Please feel free to reach out to us and we can provide you with additional information if this is something you wish to support.
In 2019 Safe Space answered over 160 calls and assisted 132 children, just in our area. The average of 1 out of 7 children in the Country will experience abuse, let's make a change!!
We appreciate your support so very much!
Our 3rd Annual Toy Drive has concluded for 2021. Thank you all for your support, from all of us here at Gorge Fly Shop we can't thank you enough and look forward to continuing this support (tradition) for the 2022 season. We hope to hear from you soon!
