From September 7-30, there will be Safe September boxes used to donate non-perishable children’s items—such as diapers, wipes and pacifiers—to The Closet. The Closet is a place for those involved in the Safe Families program can access the items they need for childcare.

Safe September is sponsored by Young Life and Christian Challenge, both of which are Christian communities. Safe September is in support of Safe Families for Children, which is a branch of Lifeline Childrens Services. The mission of Safe Families is to prevent child abuse and foster care by assisting families in crisis situations and being the support system they need while they get back on their feet.  The Safe September boxes will be located in the Union, the Student One Stop, the School of Nursing Office and the School of Business Office.
