Did you know VEAP offers modest birthday bags to our pantry visitors whose children are celebrating a birthday? Presently, we’re in short supply of many of the items we place into the bags! These birthday kits usually include a combination of the following:
- Cake or cupcake mix 🎂
- Frosting (biggest need!) 🧁
- Birthday candles (second biggest need!) 🕯️
- Birthday-themed napkins or plates 🍽️
- Birthday favors like bubbles, balloons, etc. 🎈
VEAP is only able to offer birthday bags when we have supplies on hand, which is currently about half of the time. That means some children aren’t getting supplies to celebrate their special day.
We’re now accepting donations at Door 4 behind our building any time Monday – Friday from 9 a.m. – 4:30 p.m. This is a great group activity opportunity, as VEAP accepts fully-packaged birthday bag donations. Consider teaming up with your child’s school, girl/boy scouts troop, or youth group to assemble birthday bags!
