Local ways to make back-to-school donations for foster kids



Both Maple Leaf Ace Hardware and the Maple Leaf Grill are collecting clothes, backpacks or other donations for Treehouse, a non-profit that supports foster children.

The hardware store has a list on its Facebook page for kids ages 5 to 18. It includes new:

__ Jeans

__ Long or short sleeved shirt

__ Hooded sweatshirt

__ Warm Coat

__ Socks & Underwear

__ Shoes

__ Backpack or Messenger Bag

__ A new outfit, from head to toe

The Maple Leaf Grill’s Facebook page says “Washington State gives foster parents a maximum of $300 per year to clothe a growing child. It’s simply not enough.”

The Grill is taking donations through Thursday, and Ace through Friday.

Anybody know of additional local places to help get kids back to school?
