Virtual Holiday Drives

North American Precis Syndicate

New YorkNY

(NAPSI)—There are two easy and fully virtual ways to ensure the holiday season is bright for youth in foster care this year through Treehouse. The nonprofit partners with thousands of youth to provide access to childhood experiences and critical resources as they plan for the future.


“It’s been a challenging year in so many ways, and youth in foster care have shouldered some of the heaviest burden,” said Spencer Sheridan, Treehouse’s Senior Event Coordinator.


“A meaningful holiday gift or warm clothes can make all the difference in a child’s confidence and determination to persevere.” 


Here are the two ways you can get involved: 


1.Host a Virtual Donation Drive—It only takes a minute to set up. Determine the goal, pick a name for the campaign and select a photo. “The donation drive is fun because you can set a goal as a group and easily see your collective impact. We’ll provide the proper materials and guidance for a successful virtual drive that gets everyone in the holiday spirit,” Sheridan said. Visit www.treehouseforkids.org  to get started. 


2.Shop the Holiday Wish List—Treehouse’s online registry has been curated to match the ongoing winter and holiday needs of youth in foster care. All items will be shipped to Treehouse for distribution. Just visit www.treehouseforkids.org/wishlist. “The wish list is a way to do a little shopping and stay safe since it’s virtual. You can see the toys and clothes that are in demand for our youth,” Sheridan said.


Treehouse will be updating the wish list all holiday season long so it matches the latest requests.
