Since 1937, the Ryther League has supported Ryther through fundraising, volunteer work and financial donations. The League is comprised of individual units and members-at-large throughout the Puget Sound area. From events, creating quilts, orchestrating plant sales and providing birthday cakes, haircuts and items for the Holiday Store, each unit chooses its own way to give.

Join an existing unit or start your own with friends, family or co-workers. Units have as few as 6 members and some as many as 40. You may also want to join as a member at large. The League is a separate 501(c)(3) organization and is run by a volunteer Executive Board. Members form friendships that span decades, as well as new relationships grounded in the desire to help improve the lives of vulnerable children and their families. For information, contact Robin Bennett, Ryther League Liaison at email@example.com or at 206.517.0215.
The Ryther League operates the all volunteer run R-Shoppe, a quality thrift store in old Ballard at 5435 Ballard Avenue. It is open 10:30 to 4:30 Monday through Friday and noon to 4pm on Saturdays. All proceeds benefit Ryther's programs.
To donate to the R-Shoppe please drop off quality gently used items, including clothing (adults, children) and small kitchenware as well as linens at the Ryther Campus, located at 2400 NE 95th St. from 8am – 7pm, Monday through Thursday, and 8am-5pm on Friday.
