This year for our coat drive, the PTSA decided to benefit a personal favorite of Mr. Elliott, Treehouse for Kids, a foster child charity. There will be donation boxes at both main entrances to the brick building and the treehouse. Foster kids get used to parting with familiar clothing and favorite toys, saying goodbye to family and friends, and changing schools time and again. Your donations will stock the Treehouse "Wearhouse", a free store where foster youth can shop for clothes, shoes, school supplies, books, toys and other essentials that help them feel good and fit in.
Kids achieve academically when they feel good about themselves. Fitting in or being part of the team makes a huge difference. The donations Treehouse collects provides for our community’s foster kids, making sure they have everything they need to learn and thrive.
Here’s how you can help:
Buy one or more gifts for a foster child.
Make a donation of "almost" new clothes (coats and sweaters) and toys or books.
Please bring your donations to the school and drop them in the donation boxes at either main entrance.
No time to shop or clean out your closet? You can still help by giving online at www.treehouseforkids.org/donate.
Don’t forget to put Queen Anne Elementary on the “Drive Host” line at check-out. You can also mail your cash or check donation to Treehouse, or drop it off with me, Kristin Teske the PTSA Community Development Chair.
Please feel free to contact me if you have any questions, and thank you for supporting kids in foster care, email@example.com.
