Frequently Asked Questions

Q: Can I get a tax receipt for donating to Operation Noah?

Q: How can I make monetary donations to Operation Noah?

A: If you wish to make a monetary donation to Operation Noah, please send a check to 2332 W. Detroit Pl. Chandler, AZ85224.

Q: I have heard that you need to be a certain age to actually go into the hospital and donate the stuffed animals. Is this true? And if so, what age?
A: Depending on the hospital, there might be a certain age that a person has to be in order to visit patients when they go to donate stuffed animals. Also, there mightbe a sickness that is spreading, so it is not safe to visit patients in the hospital at that time. Call the hospital beforehand to make sure that it is okay to go in and   deliver the stuffed animals directly to the patients.

Q: What if I want to donate other things besides stuffed animals, like books, can I still donate them through Operation Noah?
A: Of course, all new donations are welcomed. Just remember, it is always a good idea to contact the hospital to make sure they are in need of the item beforehand. Even if they do not go directly to the children, some items are helpful in the playroom or at a nurse’s station.

Q: I am not interested in starting a chapter. How else can I get involved with Operation Noah?

A: If you do not want to start a chapter, you can always donate stuffed animals to Operation Noah or to a hospital under Operation Noah’s name.
Q: Do you have a list of the different chapters so I can see if there is a drop-off location near me?

A: Because some collection drives only last for a few weeks, and the number of chapters change rapidly, you will have to send an e-mail to us to find out where you can donate to.
Q: I would like to start a collection drive during a special event or occasion. Do you have any suggestions?

A: You can have a collection drive at any time of the year,  but some suggestions are during a wedding, bar/bat mitzvah, birthday party, or graduation. Also, there are certain days and weeks dedicated to community service such as National Youth Service Day and Random Acts of Kindness Week. Ending a collection drive or delivering stuffed animals before a holiday is always a good idea.
