This holiday season, City Light partnered with Starbucks to gather donations of gifts and funds for Treehouse, a local non-profit organization which provides foster children in Washington state with the support they need to thrive. In its second year, the duo spread their holiday cheer across Seattle’s downtown core by expanding the number of donation sites including 14 Starbucks locations.
As of Dec. 21, the drive garnered more than 300 gifts including clothing, toys, tech gadgets, etc. for kids of all ages and raised $5,200 in monetary funds, exceeding its initial goal of $2,000, which will go directly to Treehouse to further their efforts!
In an email, Dana Petrarca, community engagement officer, thanked City Light, Starbucks and the donators who helped make this season a little brighter for the community they serve, writing: “we can’t thank you all enough for giving so many people the opportunity to give to youth in foster care!”
Here is a breakdown of this year’s drive!
