National Night Out
Held at the Walworth County Fairgrounds in Elkhorn, National Night Out is an opportunity for people throughout Walworth County to interact under positive circumstances with law enforcement, rescue agencies and community organizations such as the Tree House. The goal is to make individual neighborhoods and communities safer, more caring places to live. Events include touring emergency vehicles up close, seeing skills displays, playing child-friendly games, and taking part in fun, educational activities. National Night Out is the first Tuesday in August. The 2020 event has been cancelled because of coronavirus-related safety concerns.
School Supply Drive
In summer the Tree House starts collecting school supplies for families in need. Generous donors try to ensure that all Walworth County children can go to the first day of the school year with new supplies and backpacks.
Holiday Giving Program
Families facing challenges are given a ham, turkey or complete holiday meal, depending on their needs. Donors provide money, and the Tree House partners with local businesses to get at-cost prices so the funding stretches as far as possible. The Holiday Giving Program runs from Thanksgiving through Christmastime.
Volunteers temporarily “adopt” a child or family and buy Christmas presents for that person. The goal is to fulfill needs such as a warm coat or a pair of winter boots but also to provide a gift that’s just for fun, such as a toy. Volunteers are given the gender, age and likes/dislikes of the person or family for whom they are shopping. The reward for the donor is in giving and helping making someone’s holiday brighter while remaining anonymous.
The Tree House offers a hearty THANK YOU to all people throughout our communities who donate or hold events on our behalf.
