Host a Drive or Event
Rally Your Network to Support Treehouse
Donation drives and community events hosted on behalf of Treehouse ensure that no child in foster care goes without the essentials.
Hosting a Donation Drive
Thanks to the support of our drive hosts and generous donors, our free store for youth in foster care, the Wearhouse, remains stocked with items that help youth feel good, fit in with their peers, and have what they need to succeed.
You can help by collecting:
- Monetary donations
- New clothing
- Teen gifts
- Shoes and accessories
Hosting an Event
From birthday parties to workplace parties to bake sales, you can positively impact the lives of youth in foster care by hosting an event on behalf of our kids. Need some inspiration? Here are some creative examples of how community members are making a difference.
Whether it is the annual office holiday party, your bar mitzvah, a lemonade stand or your family reunion, you can easily add an element of community support to any celebration in your life! Chateau Ste. Michelle Winery throws a giant company picnic at the end of each summer. The highlight of the event is a wine bottle ring toss, where staff line up for hours to participate. Through this simple carnival game, they raise awareness and funds for kids in foster care.
Are you a culinary crafter? Jill and Micaela, a mother-daughter team who love to cook, decided to try their hands at raising a little dough to help kids in foster care. They asked their friends and family to submit their favorite recipes, which they compiled into an inspirational cookbook and sold to raise money for Treehouse. It was so much fun that they are working on a second edition!
Think outside the suit! For staff in the Seattle office of Marsh USA, casual Friday is more than a fashion statement – it’s an opportunity to change lives. Marsh employees who choose to wear jeans on Fridays pay five dollars into the Denim Days fund. Each month, a local charity is selected from employee suggestions to receive the fund. Treehouse was the lucky beneficiary of a denim dividend!
Help your little one learn the gift of giving! For his 8th birthday party, Jackson had all of his friends bring gifts for kids in foster care. Then, after all of the cake was eaten, Jackson and his parents delivered all of the gifts to Treehouse. Jackson was able to see where his gifts would go and learn about how much his birthday will mean to kids in foster care. What a day!
