How can you make a child feel very special on their birthday when they are in a shelter? With a “Party in a Bag”!
Our members create a Birthday Bag that has all the essentials for a party for children celebrating a birthday while they are living at Tri-Valley Haven, a local shelter.
The Birthday Bag includes several gifts for the birthday child, a birthday card, party supplies such as hats and noisemakers for the other children who attend the party, and a gift card to Safeway for Haven staff to purchase a birthday cake.
Knowing that we put a smile on the birthday child’s face is priceless.
