Welcome to the Ryther League

Since 1937, the Ryther League has supported Ryther’s programs through fundraising, volunteer work and financial donations. As a separate 501(c)(3) organization, the League is run by a volunteer Executive Board and is comprised of individual units and members-at-large throughout the Puget Sound area. From hosting events, orchestrating plant sales, and providing tangible items for children and families in need that are served by Ryther, each unit chooses its own way to get involved.  The League members also operate the volunteer-run ReStyle for Ryther Ballard thrift store.


Join an existing unit or start your own with friends, family, or co-workers. Units have as few as six members and some have as many as 40. You may also join as a member-at-large. 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. If you are interested in the League and would like to learn more, contact the League Liaison at robinb@ryther.org or call 206.517.0215.

Volunteer, donate and shop at the League’s ReStyle for Ryther Thrift Store in Ballard

The Ryther League operates the volunteer-run ReStyle for Ryther, a quality thrift store at 5435 Ballard Avenue NW. It is open Tuesday through Saturday, 11:30 am to 5:30 pm, on Sunday 11:30 am to 3:30 pm and is closed Mondays. All proceeds benefit Ryther’s programs. Note: ReStyle for Ryther will be closed until further notice and we will keep this page updated about its future opening. You can follow us on Facebook here; we will be posting store updates there as well.

The League is always looking for volunteers to work in the store or in the receiving room where donations are sorted, prepared, priced and transported to the store. If you are interested in volunteering in the store please email robinb@ryther.org.

To donate to ReStyle for Ryther, please drop off quality used items: women and men’s clothing, shoes, jewelry, home décor items (vases, candle holders, serving dishes, bread trays, etc.) to Ryther’s main campus, located at 2400 NE 95th St. from 8 am–7 pm, Monday through Thursday and 8 am – 5 pm on Friday. If you have a larger donation (more than a few bags or boxes), please email robinb@ryther.org or call 206.517.0215 to schedule a drop-off.
