Box of Balloons is a nonprofit providing birthday parties to children in need. We work with community social workers to identify children in need, children who otherwise will not a get birthday celebration. Volunteers then donate party supplies needed to give them a happy birthday! All supplies are put into a birthday box and delivered to the child's parents or caregivers so they can celebrate their own child.
We are looking for volunteers to join our Iowa City area team! Volunteers receive signs up via email and can choose to donate or make party items for the child's birthday box. You can also sign up to put together an entire birthday box.
We are on a mission to make each birthday happy and every child celebrated.
Box of Balloons provides birthday parties for children in need. We partner with community social workers to identify children who otherwise will not be celebrated and our volunteer put everything needed for a themed party into a box. The birthday box is then given to the parent or caregiver so they can be empowered and celebrate their own child. We are hoping to expand to each state across the country. All of our chapters are volunteer led!

Volunteering with Box of Balloons is very easy and low time commitment. Depending on which supply you agree to donate/make it can take less than 30 minutes. If you want to put together the entire birthday box about 1-2 hours.
