All stuffed animal donations must be new with the tags attached, in accordance with Dayton Children’s Hospital donation policy.

If you are unable to make the meeting and wish to donate, contact Sara McCatherine at director@aafdayton.org or 937-248-4697.  The animals will be delivered on December 11th, so we will need them before then, so we can get them where they need to be to meet that date.
