October 5th, 2015 | Birthdays, Children, Giving, Partners | Join the conversation
Forty-two nonprofit organizations, including food shelves, shelters and human service agencies, enjoyed the opportunity to pick up more than 5,000 of our birthday bags on Sept. 30th to distribute to the families they serve. Thanks to AMC Sales, Inc. for generously sharing their space to hold this event.
We hope to continue to periodically offer birthday bags for pick up by organizations who serve less fortunate children. We welcome new organizations to contact us about future distributions. Here are a few comments we received:
