A Story of Sharing: How YOU Made Tree House More Beautiful
This past summer The Tree House physically moved just a few yards to the suite next door, but this small move has made a huge difference to us. Our staff is now in a contiguous space that allows us to interact more easily; our waiting room is now larger, more secure and child-friendly; and we were able to build out three new therapy rooms. But we couldn't do this alone. It was only with the help of our friends that we were able to successfully accomplish this feat.
Loyal supporter, Kathy Healy, watches our Facebook page faithfully, jumps in to help often, and shares posts she feels are important. A Facebook friend of hers saw her posts and suggested to his company that they provide a grant to The Tree House to outfit two of our three new therapy rooms. They most generously did just that!
In the meantime, powerhouse Sheena Saydam, had been spreading the word about the work we do at The Tree House to all of her Facebook friends for years. Two of these friends, Iwona Petrov and Alex Petrov, owners of the design company yZiGN, were especially drawn to our mission. They volunteered their time, energy and talent to create beautiful, warm, and child-friendly spaces in which therapy could occur. They also designed our inviting new waiting room.
While we now have a fabulous waiting room and two beautiful new therapy rooms, we still have one therapy room left to decorate. We will use the funds raised this past Tuesday, #GivingTuesday, to furnish this last room. If you missed donating on that day, it's not too late to help. Just click here and we'll use your donation to help us finish this project. Any and all donations received in excess of the amount needed to furnish this room will go toward the services we provide for every child we see at The Tree House. Together we can make great things happen!

The Tree House Receives Donation from FitRec
Last month FITREC held its very first 5K run, and The Tree House CAC of Montgomery County Maryland was the beneficiary. In mid-November Michael Anthony Bustillos, CEO of Fitrec, came to The Tree House to make his donation from the proceeds of this event...$500! We have known Anthony for less than a year, but he has already proven himself to be a champion for the children at The Tree House many times over. Thank you, Anthony!
We are Looking for Volunteer Gift Wrappers!
The Montgomery Village Kiwanis Club has been a longtime outstanding supporter of The Tree House CAC of Montgomery County Maryland. Each year they provide gift-wrapping services through the holiday season at Child's Play of Rockville. The proceeds they raise from this activity go to The Tree House, last year netting $2,947.50! This year they are looking for more volunteers to help them wrap. If you are able to take a gift-wrapping shift, sign up here. Students CAN get SSL hours!
