WDTL'S 2020 BACK TO SCHOOL DRIVE
in support of
While COVID-19 has many wondering what this school year will look like for students in Washington, one thing remains the same - WDTL's commitment to Treehouse and its annual Back to School Drive.
For those of you unfamiliar with Treehouse, it was founded in 1988 and is Washington's leading nonprofit organization that provides academic and other essential support for youth in foster care. Treehouse is committed to closing the academic achievement gap between youth in foster care and their peers.
High school graduation rates for youth in foster care are below 50% in Washington State and nationwide, and less than 3 percent will earn a bachelor's degree. With your help, Treehouse will achieve its goal by 2022 for every youth in foster care throughout the state to graduate from high school at the same rate as their peers.
Treehouse helps more than 7,500 youth each year who are in need of support. Kids achieve academically when they feel confident. Your support will not only allow youth in foster care to start this school year in style but will also provide the necessary supplies for their success in the classroom.
Treehouse is in need of backpacks and other school supplies such as paper, notebooks, pens, crayons, glues sticks, etc. However, due to the social restrictions in place from COVID-19, Treehouse is not directly accepting any school supplies this year. You may purchase school supplies through Treehouse's Target wish list HERE. Treehouse is also accepting monetary donations on their website. VISIT OUR PAGE
