Party Schedule (On-Site Parties) View Birthday-in-a-Box Parties
These parties are held at the shelters. Birthday Wishes volunteers plan and implement every facet of the party - 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. Once approved, background checks are valid for 3 years.
