Posted at 10:37 AM, Jun 09, 2023

TULSA, Okla. — 2 News Oklahoma teamed up with QuikTrip to gather comfort items to benefit clients of the Child Abuse Network (CAN).

Every child that comes to their facility receives a stuffed animal and a blanket. Through generous donations we raised 1100 comfort items and over $3500 in donations. This will help keep CAN stocked up through the end of the year.

Officials said they typically see about 60 children a week. CAN is Tulsa’s only non-profit providing intervention services in a single, safe, and child-friendly location for child abuse victims. Their mission is to provide collaborative intervention services to child abuse victims, so that they are encouraged to embrace a future driven by hope. Since being founded in 1988 CAN has provided intervention services for more than 40,000 abused and neglected children.

You can also make monetary donations HERE. According to CAN $35 covers the cost of a stuffed animal and blanket for one child.
