CARSTAR Hosts Donation Drive for Treehouse for Kids
Western Washington autobody shops have successful clothes and toy drive for foster children
Bellevue, WA (PRWEB) April 27, 2012
Last winter Puget Sound CARSTAR Auto Body Repair held a holiday donation drive to provide clothes and toys to foster children at Treehouse for Kids. Puget Sound CARSTAR locations, including Collision Clinic CARSTAR of Edmonds, acted as drop-off sites for the donations and displayed giving trees that allowed donors the option to pick a tag and shop for a specific child. Eastside CARSTAR Auto Rebuild in Bellevue, one of 18 local CARSTAR locations participating in the drive, declared the drive a success and was able to donate several boxes of toys to Treehouse.
Treehouse is a non-profit organization founded in 1988 that offers programs such as tutoring, college and career planning, and summer camps for children in foster care who are in need of safe, stable environments to help them excel. In 2011, Treehouse supported over 5,000 foster children with the help of volunteers and donors like CARSTAR. Nearly three-quarters of the clothes in Treehouse´s Wearhouse come from seasonal drives like the one hosted by CARSTAR last winter and in previous years.
CARSTAR remains active in the Puget Sound community and across the country through its involvement with a number of charities–the most notable being the Make-A-Wish Foundation–and events such as National Military Month and the Treehouse for Kids Holiday Donation Drive.
