Happy birthday to you! Joel celebrated his birthday last week at CCO. He and his mother were given new toys, a decorated cake, and party supplies to celebrate his special day. CCO shelters nearly 150 children and each birthday is important. A small network of dedicated volunteers bake cakes, decorate them, and deliver them to CCO for the children living in our shelter. Donors purchase cake mixes, canned icing, candles, and decorations, to make each cake special.
It’s important to have special events and celebrations for the families and individuals we shelter because being homeless is hard difficult. Isn’t it great to think that the children and parents sheltered at CCO will look back on their homeless experience with these bright and special moments?
Birthdays are a special time at CCO. Every child who has a birthday while being sheltered with us receives new toys, a cake (of their choosing), and a lot of sweet congratulations! Be a part of making important birthday parties happen by donating new, unopened cake mixes (all kinds), canned icing, birthday candles, and cake decoration. To organize a drop-off time please email Eve at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Thanks to all our wonderful donors who have dropped off birthday items so far this year!
Over 140 children are sheltered at CCO with their families on any given day. Birthdays should be special for every child. A few thoughtful volunteers purchase or bake a birthday cake and bring it to the shelter when it’s time to celebrate someones special day. Volunteers wrap new presents from the donations we receive. It’s great to think that kids sheltered at CCO will look back at their time of homelessness and also have these special memories.
Thank you to all our volunteers that make a difference at CCO!
Happy birthday to you! 14 children living at CCO have their birthdays in the month of April. Each month, CCO staff make sure parents get new gifts to give to their child on their birthday. Celebrations and milestones are important. And that is especially true during difficult or transitional times.
