This Can be Done From Home! Children's "Birthday Basket Kit" Makers

Save to Favorites

Volunteer Polk

  • 20 people are interested

Do you recall when you were a child, the excitement your birthday would bring? A special day to celebrate you! From the comforts of your home, you can create and donate "Birthday Basket Kits' that will be empower struggling families being served by the One More Child Family Support Ministries, to be able to throw their child a birthday celebration. Due to COVID's economic impact, the ministry now has an additional 500 families to serve. Baskets may be themed for a boy or girl's birthday celebration. Suggested contents of the birthday kit might include items such as:

  • Box of Cake Mix
  • Cake Frosting
  • Birthday Candles
  • Birthday Napkins
Feel free to add additional items if you wish, such as a Happy Birthday Banner or balloons (deflated), or even a gift bag to serve as your "basket". These items will help parents who are struggling with the economy to be able to provide a special birthday celebration for their child. Feel free to make as many kits as you would like, track your hours in obtaining items and assembling items into baskets. Grow your project even bigger, by recruiting additional friends to also make baskets! Kit making can be a great project of helping others and is open to individuals and families of all ages to participate!

Interested ? Click the "I want to Help" button and give us your contact info and we will send you the details for how you may get your birthday kits to the organization. Thanks for making a special day extra special for these children and their families! Here is a link to copy into your browser for viewing a sample birthday kit: https://vimeo.com/427037069
