effort to support this vital service to our community, Marchex employees
pledged their support to Treehouse and coordinated the largest
back-to-school drive the company has had to date.
Marchex employees in the Seattle and New York City offices organized
into eight teams, and donated money, school supplies and clothing over
two weeks. The winning team was led by Trinh Vu, Program Manager, whose

Overall, Marchex employees donated more than $24,000 in clothing, school
supplies and monetary donations.
“We are so grateful for Marchex employees’ continued commitment to youth
in foster care in our community. The generous donations of Marchex

school success this year. Thank you for partnering with Treehouse to
ensure youth in foster care can have a childhood and a future,” stated
Treehouse CEO, Janis Avery.
