SEATTLE, November 14, 2019 – The Global Service in Walla Walla, Washington, is one of the first organizations to sign up to host a  holiday drive this season with Treehouse, which gives youth in foster care a childhood and a future.

“Treehouse makes the holidays bright for thousands of children and youth in foster care statewide, and we’re just excited to be a small part of the magic,” said Brook Thompson, a representative with The Global Service, a student led community service group at Walla Walla University.

More than 5,000 youth throughout the state will open a meaningful gift thanks to Treehouse’s Holiday Magic program. The money raised also funds a variety of other programs and important childhood activities—such as music lessons, sports and summer camps. The kids explore new interests and discover lifelong passions as they work to eventually launch successfully into adulthood. Treehouse now supports youth in care from birth to well into their 20s.

“Hosting a donation drive is a simple way to make a difference. Treehouse provides comprehensive assistance to make your drive a success and get the community into the holiday spirit,” said Erika Lanier, Community Engagement Officer at Treehouse.

All organizations and individuals are invited to get involved. Visit www.treehouseforkids.org/holiday to sign up or www.treehouseforkids.org and click “Donate” to give directly.

The suggested drive goal is $500 and can be adjusted to fit any size group. Treehouse’s toolkit makes it easy with everything needed:

  • A unique online donation page.
  • Instructions, tips and tricks, and helpful information.
  • Various ways to share about Treehouse and the drive.
  • A poster and a wish list.
  • Donation gift tags.
