BIRTHDAY IN A BOX PROGRAM
Our BIAB program is for safe shelters and other living facilities which cannot accommodate Birthday Wishes volunteers. Party supplies and gifts are carefully packaged within a wrapped birthday box for each birthday child, so they are able to celebrate their birthday with family and friends. All party supplies must be new, unused, and in original packaging. Everything should be contained in a box (with cover) that has been wrapped in birthday-themed wrapping paper (see photo below).
When preparing boxes we ask that there be strict supervision. Please ensure each box has the exact items listed below. It is very time consuming for our staff when we receive boxes that are incomplete or not packaged properly. Please make sure the boxes are wrapped with care and taped appropriately.
We ask that when donating a birthday box you wrap and pack the box as if it were for your own child’s party.

- 1 Cake Mix
- 1 Frosting
