Every year, Treehouse and Stifel RMG Group team up to send kids in foster care back to school in style and with confidence.

The first day of school can be hard for many kids, but it can be especially tough for youth in foster care facing tremendous challenges. At Treehouse, our mission is to give these youth a childhood and a future. And, we think one of the ways to do that is by offering them the opportunity to shop for a new pair of jeans or a great backpack. These items can help kids fit in with their peers, feel empowered and ultimately perform better in school.

That’s why we are so grateful for partners like Stifel RMG Group which plays a major role in helping us stock The Wearhouse for our back-to-school season. Every summer, their group comes together to raise money and do a big shopping trip with our staff and volunteers.

This year, they raised $12,500! With this support, we were able to purchase over 200 complete outfits and fill up our racks just in time for our back-to-school shopping season.

Thank you to the Bellevue Square Macy’s for opening your doors early for Treehouse and Stifel RMG Group so we can send kids in foster care back to school in style.

And a big thank you to Stifel RMG Group for their continued commitment to supporting our youth during back-to-school season. This year marks the 19th year of our wonderful partnership.
