Make a Child’s Birthday a Special One!
In order to make birthdays special for the many children we serve, the Pantry assembles a “Birthday in a Bag” for children ages 2 through 9. You can create a complete birthday party using the list below, or donate a quantity of any item, indicating it is for the Birthday Kits. We also welcome age appropriate birthday gifts to add to our Birthday in a Bag kits.
- One Cake Mix
- One Frosting
- One Party Game
- One Package Balloons
- One Cake Decorating Item (sprinkles, gel, etc.)
- Six Party Hats
- Six Paper Plates, Cups, Napkins
- Six Party Treats (not necessarily six packages)
- Six Loot Bags
- Nine Birthday Candles (or one numeric candle)
All Party Bags need to be labeled for a boy or girl. If you use a numeric candle, please note that age on the bag. Please try to match color schemes/party themes.
