5th Annual Back-To-School Donation Drive Benefiting Treehouse

For the month of August, Washington Defense Trial Lawyers are supporting Treehouse in collecting new school clothes,  backpacks, and  school supplies for youth in foster care. 
For the month of August, Washington Defense Trial Lawyers are supporting Treehouse in collecting new school clothes, backpacks  and  school supplies for youth in foster care.  Treehouse is a 501(c)(3) organization and was started in 1988 by a group of DSHS workers who grew tired of seeing the increasing deprivation of youth in foster care.  Today, Treehouse assists over 7,500 youth in foster care with its primary focus on setting up foster kids for academic success.  By 2022 through the efforts of Treehouse and your help, youth in foster care across Washington will graduate from high school at the same rate as their peers.
 
WDTL is collecting donations until August 25, 2018.  You may drop off your donations at the  WDTL office which is located at 701 Pike Street, Suite 1400 in Seattle.  Or, arrange for us to pick up the donations from your office or firm.  If you would like to make a monetary donation, click here.  If you have any questions, please email Drive Chair Diane Cornell at dcornell@scheerlaw.com or call 206-587-8263. 
 
Thank you for supporting the educational needs of youth in our community.
