The 2018 hurricane season has been extraordinarily active in parts of the U.S., with Hurricane Florence currently impacting millions in the Carolinas. As this natural disaster unfolds, the staff here at VolunteerMatch is doing its part to ensure that, if you are in an affected community, you are prepared and safe. And if you are looking to help with disaster relief efforts, you know about the most effective ways to contribute.
The Birthday Party is a Non-Profit Organization dedicated to creating special memories for disadvantaged children ... one party at a time.
The Birthday Party, Inc., is a 501(c)(3) Non-Profit Organization established in 2016 in Pensacola, FL. The purpose of The Birthday Party (TBP) is to celebrate that special day, whether it be their birthday or some other milestone, in the life of a child who may temporarily find their little life under undesirable circumstances. Whether the child is in a temporary shelter or elsewhere, TBP creates a colorful and fun party. Our Board of Directors and volunteers go to the location, decorate and host a party with games, face painting, favors, gifts, and cake and ice cream. Note, that often times the shelter is at an undisclosed location and for the protection of the children there appears no photos of them.
We host monthly parties at The Lakeview Center, The Favor House, PACE Center for Girls and provide Birthday Boxes at the Ronald McDonald House of NW FL, Pensacola!
Also important to us at TBP, is empowering the parent(s) of the child in offering them the choice of hosting the party themselves. In that case, TBP will furnish all the supplies and cake needed to host a successful party in what we call The Birthday Box.
