OTHER WAYS TO GET INVOLVED: 

Host a donation drive. 
Donation drives are essential to Treehouse’s mission. They raise money to fund extracurricular activites, like art classes, which allow youth living in foster care to build confidence and community.  Donation drives also ensure that The Wearhouse, our free store for foster kids, is stocked with the essentials.

Donate Clothing & Other Essentials.
Donations of new and like new clothing, supplies, shoes, and toys fill the Wearhouse, their free store, with the things kids in foster care need and want to feel good and fit in.

Donate Services for Kids in Foster Care.
Treehouse depends on donations of time, in-kind items and money from the community.  Our Little Wishes program provides support for extracurricular activities including martial arts lessons, piano lessons, swimming lessons and more. In addition to these services we also help out with costs for high school kids like senior photos, driver’s education, tuxedo rental, hair care and all of the things kids should experience but foster kids often miss out on.

Volunteer Opportunities.
Holiday Carousel Volunteers - November through January
In partnership with the Downtown Seattle Association, Treehouse provides volunteer support to operate the holiday carousel at Westlake Park. We need volunteers to greet riders, sell tickets, monitor riders, and collect donations for Treehouse.
