birthday in a box
We provide individual birthday boxes filled with all of the essentials to throw a birthday party for foster youth in the Sacramento area. We include decorations, games, snacks, a box cake and frosting, a handmade card and a birthday present. A case worker or a group home will request a party based on a child’s personality, and our volunteers will create a box to fulfill their wishes.
wrapping parties/supply drives
We host wrapping parties for schools, churches, businesses, and volunteer groups. Hold a supply drive the week before the event to gather birthday supplies and then work as a team to assemble, wrap and put together birthday boxes. Email us to request a date for your next wrapping party!
adopt a birthday
Instead of receiving gifts for yourself on your birthday, ask friends for party supplies, gift cards (Visa, Target or Walmart), new toys or to simply donate to Team Celebrate under your name!
handmade birthday cards
In every birthday in a box, we include a handmade card. The birthday kids love getting cards from other kids their age! Get your class, Girl Scout troop or youth group together to make birthday cards for foster youth. Please use an 8.5 x 11 piece of paper folded in half. On the front, please write: Happy Birthday, Friend! On the inside, please write: It’s Your Day to Celebrate! Please decorate as you wish and sign your first name. You can arrange to drop off cards at our office in El Dorado Hills.
