Umbrella Tree hosting backpack drive for Northwest Center Kids

August 6th, 2014 by Laura

Local Queen Anne business Umbrella Tree is hosting a backpack and school supply community drive for Northwest Center. Umbrella Tree creates and hosts kid-focused social and play development classes at Twirl Café.

Umbrella Tree backpackTo help out Northwest Center’s Kids Program, Umbrella Tree is running a community drive to get 45 backpacks and supplies “adopted” for the upcoming school year.

Northwest Center has had a tough year, as the organization was faced with a late notice to vacate its long-time Queen Anne home. As of June, it found a home in Greenwood, but it still has many strong ties in the Queen Anne community.

If you’d like to help out, sign-up on Umbrella Tree’s site to adopt a new, or donate a “like-new” backpack, and they’ll also let you know of the recipient’s school supply needs to help fill the backpack.

Backpacks can be dropped off at the Queen Anne Eat Local (corner of Queen Anne Ave N and McGraw) and Twirl Café (2111 Queen Anne Ave N) now through next Friday, August 15th.
