Our Store it Safe Programs NEEDS Your Support

YOU can make a difference in safe storage. Give today.

In commemoration of the Ohio AAP’s 90 Year Anniversary, we’re seeking to raise $90,000 to support the sustainability of our innovative and proven Store It Safe (SIS) program. SIS is unique in its comprehensive approach, training healthcare providers to screen for depression and suicide, discuss lethal means, distribute storage devices, and provide resources for families.

Every $90 donated provides lifesaving education and a lock box for 3 families. 

  • Suicide is the 2nd leading cause of death in people 10-25 years old in the US.
  • 82% of youth who completed suicide used a firearm from their home.
  • 80% of adolescents visited a healthcare provider within one year prior to death by suicide.

Funds raised will support…

  • Sustainability of the SIS program.
  • Purchase of lock boxes for families.
  • Targeted public awareness campaign in partnership with firearm retailers to educate on the importance of screening and safe storage of lethal means.

Every donation, no matter how big or small, brings us one step closer to our goal. Ready to make a difference?

Together, we can save lives and make a lasting difference in the lives of Ohio’s youth. Thank you for being a part of our journey and please contact Olivia Simon at osimon@ohioaap.org for any questions.
