Making the Holidays Brighter

The Treehouse Holiday Magic program helps to make the holidays brighter for children and youth in foster care by raising resources from the community to provide a holiday gift to eligible youth across Washington state. This program is made possible through a 30-year partnership with Washington state’s Department of Children Youth and Families.

Gift Registration will take place October 1-November 23

Gift Shipments will occur November 12-December 12

If you have not received your gift by December 15, please contact us at 206.267.5111 or via email at
