We provide toy-filled birthday gift bags to food shelves and shelters so that parents living in poverty can give their child a birthday gift.

This was done in conjunction with National Make A Difference Day where millions of Americans across the country were doing their part to “change the world.”

Many thanks to all who participated and special thanks to our sponsors:  Do Good Group, Wings Financial, Michael & Claudia Cuddyer, Thrivent Financial Northern Dakota County Chapter, Thrivent Financial Southern Dakota/Scott County Chapter and Thrivent Financial Corporate.

As a result of these efforts, there will be 3,000 less fortunate children who get to have a Happy Birthday!
