How to Build a Birthday-in-a-Box

Help us celebrate our 5th birthday this November!!! 

We are going to be collecting items needed for a Birthday-in-a-Box! Each box will help deliver birthday joy to a child currently experiencing the trauma of homelessness. 

The Birthday-in-a-Box (BIAB) program was created in 2005, this program allows Birthday Wishes to reach homeless children in almost any living situation. 

Party supplies are carefully packaged inside a brightly wrapped box and delivered to the program, agency, motel, or other facility for distribution to families, along with a bag of wrapped gifts for the birthday celebrant. Each birthday box contains everything necessary for a great birthday celebration. This program empowers and bonds families, helping them maintain this important tradition while in a shelter.

The following items are required for each Birthday-in-a Box. 

*You do not need to complete a full box in order to donate. We will be putting together boxes with miscellaneous items at the end of our drive! 

*All items included in the box must be unopened and in the original packaging.
