These parties are held at the shelters. Every facet of the party is handled by Birthday Wishes volunteers - from planning to implementation - including individually wrapped birthday gifts, games, party favors, decorations, entertainment, and of the course the birthday cake. Birthday supply donations, gifts and volunteers are needed.
All party volunteers must complete a background check before they are approved. Once approved, background checks are valid for 3 years. View Detailed instructions...
