The trucks at Workpointe usually deliver furniture for their customers. In partnership with Treehouse, they’re bringing backpacks and other essentials to youth in foster care.

“Treehouse has a fantastic mission that not only helps the kids day to day, but has a plan to support them down the road as they work toward their futures. Providing foster kids with academic guidance builds their confidence and closes the achievement gap,” said Kylee Westmark, Workpointe’s Marketing Communications Manager.

This summer, Workpointe had one of their trucks pick up backpacks and school supplies at Treehouse to deliver in Spokane for a pop-up shop in collaboration with Teen and Kid Closet. Other organizations volunteered from the Spokane local community such as Pizza Hut.

“We were super happy that we could assist,” said Michelle Berg, Vice President at Workpointe.

Then on December 4, the organization picked up a large donation from Ticket to Dream Foundation and delivered it to Treehouse.

Workpointe envisions all children having the same opportunities and supports they want, need and deserve to become contributing members of society, regardless of their backgrounds.

“Foster students should not be graduating at a lesser rate than any other students, and we are proud to support and partner with Treehouse in achieving these goals for Washington state,” Kylee said.
