Every child deserves a special birthday celebration! So many of our own children are very fortunate to have wow-worthy parties and wonderful cakes and exciting gifts to round out their annual celebrations. In the spirit of “every child should be celebrated”, our volunteers and TSCKids’ families once again came together to collect and fulfill the birthday-in-a-box dreams of many kids in the Drueding Center’s transitional housing program.
Last year, we were able to assemble fifteen love-filled boxes, but this year, we set our goal high to spread birthday cheer and are so excited that we filled over forty birthday kits! Each box was filled to the brim with a fun theme party for a special little boy or girl in their program to help them have a wonderful little birthday celebration with their family and friends.
Upon delivering three carloads of boxes to Philadelphia, we were greeted by several members of the Drueding Center who helped us unload and fill their entryway. The Drueding Center offers transitional housing for young, homeless families with parents between the ages of 18 and 24 and the impact they are having is truly remarkable. We hope these birthday kits help the center a little bit as they continue to offer a holistic approach and real hope for the future for the young families they serve.
