Treehouse accepting donations for kids in foster care
Treehouse’s Holiday Magic program makes the holidays brighter for 5,500 kids in foster care statewide by raising money to buy each one a meaningful gift such as a bicycle or the latest electronic gadget.
Now in its 29th year, the program relies on individual donations and donation drives hosted by a variety of groups in the community.
“Anyone from an office or school to a place of worship can host a holiday donation drive. Individuals and families can host drives too,” said Dana Petrarca, community engagement oficer at Treehouse, which gives youth in foster care a childhood and a future. “We’ll make sure you have everything needed for a successful drive that gets everyone in the holiday spirit.”
To get started, download the drive host toolkit at www.treehouseforkids.org/holiday, or visit www.treehouseforkids.org and click “Donate” to give directly.
