holiday gift donation drive 2017

Announcing Our 2017 Holiday Gift Drive

Each morning, nearly 9,000 children in foster care in Washington State will wake up this holiday season to unfamiliar surroundings.

 

Fortunately, we can make their season bright.

 

That is why Peralta Orthodontics is hosting a holiday donation drive. Together, we can help stock the Treehouse Wearhouse, a free store where kids in foster care can shop for toys, warm clothes, books, and other essential items this holiday season.

 

We were inspired to start this gift drive by a former local foster child who recalls using the “amazing” Treehouse services when she was younger. She said the people who donate to Treehouse helped to make her childhood “bearable” during a “lonely and stressful time when you’re not with your biological family”. Thanks to your donation, we can help more children feel cared for and believed in.

 

You can help by providing:

 

  • Monetary donations
  • New clothing
  • Teen gifts
  • Toys
  • Shoes and accessories

We will be collecting physical donations until Friday, December 15th.  If you plan to bring a donation to the office outside of your appointment time, please call ahead to ensure our hours and location for the day, 206-244-7800.  Feel free to email Erin with any questions, erin@peraltaortho.com.

 

Together, we can give kids in foster care a childhood and a future.
