Become a Party Coordinator





What is a Party Coordinator?



A Party Coordinator (PC) is a volunteer that has made a one year commitment to coordinate and run a monthly party at a shelter. Parties are typically held on a weekday evening, starting around 6:00pm.


Party Coordinators communicate with their assigned shelter on a monthly basis to obtain birthday party information, connect with donors to coordinate party supplies, run the party and supervise the volunteers to ensure a magical experience for everyone, all with ongoing support from Birthday Wishes staff.
