Ready to Help Other Kids?

Room to Grow Birthday Party

DURATION

1-2 hours

WHERE

Home (or wherever you are having your birthday party!)

WHEN

On your birthday

WHOSE HELP IS REQUIRED

Some help from Mom, Dad or a grown up is required.

HOW IT MAKES A DIFFERENCE

All of the gifts you generously donate to Room to Grow will immediately go home with babies being raised in poverty. Without your help, these kids may not get the toys, books, clothing and other treats you gift to them. All of your gifts will help children in need have a brighter start in life.

DESCRIPTION

Celebrate your birthday by helping a baby in need. The gift of giving will make you feel great! Ask friends and family to bring a gift for a child age newborn to three years old, instead of, or in addition to, bringing a gift for you. We'll distribute those gifts to deserving families in our program.


ITEMS NEEDED

1. A birthday party (Make sure to tell your guests that you are asking for gifts for a child in need being served at Room to Grow.)

2. A bin or bag to collect all of your gifts
