Volunteering with Treehouse
On a sunny Sat morning on July 18th, a group of WPIG members (and a couple dedicated friends) arrived at the Treehouse Wearhouse in south Seattle to help sort clothes and assist with inventory to work on readying the store for shopping days.
After getting an introduction and tour of the impressive Wearhouse, the WPIG women participated in the Wearhouse game to learn how to sort through donations to find sell-able items. They then split up into two groups to tackle the projects at hand — one group went about sorting and organizing recent donations to prepare to be sold in the Wearhouse, and the other group set out to help with their annual inventory audit. it was a great opportunity to learn about Treehouse and the Wearhouse store, and support such an amazing organization.
The Treehouse Wearhouse is a free store where foster youth and their caregivers can shop for high quality new and like-new clothing, shoes, school supplies, toys, books and other essentials. Treehouse invests in the lives of young people who have faced the deep wounds from a crisis of parenting. In helping them to secure the essential education, basic material needs, and social experiences they equally deserve, we help kids in foster care discover their own resilience and strength. Treehouse is committed to leveling the playing field for youth in foster care, so that each is included, may prosper in, and contribute to society.
We are proud to have been able to help Treehouse in the work they do to support youth in foster care. To learn more about Treehouse please visit their website.
