A birthday party is not always a reality for many families in our community. We want to help make it possible! Box of Balloons works with community organizations and social workers to identify families in need. Our volunteers work together to "pack a party in a box" with all of the necessary items for the parent/caregiver to host their child's dream party (this includes cake, candles, and a gift). The process: A social worker/community organization fills out our birthday request form in order for us to custom make the child's party. Once the box is complete, it's given to the connecting person, who then delivers to the family. Box of Balloons stays in the background, empowering the parents/caregivers to be their child's hero!
Ways to volunteer: create or purchase items for the birthday boxes, decorate cards/boxes, donate to our chapter fund, bake or purchase cupcakes/baked goods, create party games and/or decorations. Our organization is for everyone, including young children! There are no age restrictions for our volunteers!
What a great way to teach our little ones the value of showing kindness and love to others, in a way they can understand: a birthday party! A birthday party is so much more than cake and presents. It's about love, family, memories. It tells a child "you are loved," "you matter," "you are valued." Let's help make these lifelong memories possible for families and children in need!
