[SERVICE PROJECT] The Birthday Box

As discussed at January's meeting, this month's service project will be a drive for The Birthday Box, a non-profit that provides children in need with an opportunity to blow out candles and make a birthday wish on his or her special day. An entire birthday celebration is assembled, packaged & then delivered to Westchester children. This "party in a box" includes a birthday cake, candles, party plates, a birthday present and party decorations.
All items must be NEW and in UNOPENED packages. We will collect:
  • Plates, cups, napkins, in sets of 8, 12 or 16, themed to all match or generic "happy birthday." 
  • Packages of forks, in sets of 8, 12, 16 (any color!)
  • Toys: new, in original packaging, ages 1-16
  • Candles 
  • Cake mix and frosting

There is an Amazon Wish List for this drive, so if you would like to place an order and have items shipped directly to Justine, visit
You may also drop off items at Justine's house. For arrangements, contact her at

TIP: Places like TJ Maxx have great, inexpensive toys. Or perhaps your children received holidays gifts they don't really want or need and they would like to donate to this great cause?
