Ryther Giving Tree

Thank you to everyone that picked a tag from the Ryther Giving Tree! With your help, we were able to give away all 64 tags this week!

As many of you know, every year BOMA helps brighten the holidays for the children at Ryther Child Center and with your help, we are able to continue that tradition this year.


A few reminders:

- If possible, please provide a receipt or online order number in case there are any issues.
- This year we are asking for gift cards. You can give any amount but we suggest anywhere between $25-$75. Gift cards help with ongoing needs of the children in residential treatment. By providing gift cards, we empower the parents/guardians to buy gifts and pick out exactly what their child may want, allowing them to make their family’s holiday special.
- Please bring your gift cards to the BOMA office before December 4th or to the BOMA Holiday Party on December 5th.

For questions, please contact the BOMA office at 206-622-8924.

Your participation and extreme generosity are greatly appreciated!
