The 2015 Holiday Magic program put on by Treehouse, in partnership with Children’s Administration, is under way! This year Treehouse will be sending out both letters and emails to caregivers with program information. The initial email will go out to caregivers on October 1. The initial letter will be sent on October 15. Caregivers can request a gift by completing the form mailed to them and mailing it back to Treehouse, or they can fill out the online form.
The Online Request Page for caregivers (www.treehouseforkids.org/registration) will be open and live on October 15.
The first shipment of gifts will be scheduled November 12. Treehouse asks that any questions about a request, or expected delivery time be held until the first shipment is scheduled. Shipments will be scheduled every Tuesday starting November 17, with the final shipment in 2015 scheduled for Monday, December 21.
