Check out all the ways you can make a child’s birthday special.

Enchanted Birthday Magic

Birthday Party Staff

Volunteers are always needed to help staff the birthday parties. Volunteers must be at least 18 years of age to volunteer and clearances (via Childline and PA State Police) are required. For special circumstances we will accommodate volunteers 15-17 with adult supervision.

Birthday Bakers

A birthday party is not complete without delicious birthday treats. We are always in need of volunteers to help bake cupcakes or cookies for birthday parties. The number of birthday guests varies from month to month, but we ask that our baker volunteers be able to accommodate at least four dozen people. We have a no nuts policy.

Office Helpers

Volunteer to inventory toys, boutique items, and help us create birthday packages. This can be one-time or on-going at our office. We host this weekly service opportunity on Mondays and Wednesdays from 9-4 p.m. at our headquarters.

Treat Bag Sponsors

Volunteers can sign up to sponsor the treat bags for a birthday celebration. We usually need 3 dozen per party. Great family friendly opportunity to get involved.

A Family Affair – Service Saturdays

On the second Saturday of the month, we host family friendly volunteer days at our headquarters. These events are from 9-12 p.m. and do fill up quickly.

Custom Volunteer Days

We will work with companies, groups, and clubs to organize special, custom volunteer projects.

Collections for a Cause

One of the many ways groups and individuals help support Beverly’s Birthdays is by organizing a Collection for a Cause, which is a in-kind donation drive. We are always in need of items to support our Birthday Cheer Programs, and so we offer a variety of collection drive options to off-set our needs. We ask that before you launch a Collection for a Cause, please contact us and review the Collection for a Cause resource guide.

Types of Collections for a Cause

Birthday Cheer Bin Toy Collection Drive

We distribute Birthday Cheer Bins (present packages) to over 8,000 children annually. Therefore, we are always in need of toys for all ages 0-21. In every bin, we always include a mixture of large gifts, small stocking stuffer size items, toothbrushes, toothpaste, a snack, and a new book.

Beverly's Babies Supply Drive

We distribute newborn care packages, Itty Bitty Birthday Diaper Bags, to over 2,000 expecting mothers in need annually. We are always in need of specific baby care items for our packages and for our First Year Cheer referral program.

Birthday in a Bag Supply Drive

We distribute birthday party supply packages to over 2,000 families annually. We are always in need of specific paper products, icing, and cake mix to support this program.

Hygiene Kits and Snack Packs

We service over 8,000 children annually, and we like to include Happy Hygiene Kits and Snack Packs in their Birthday Cheer Bins. Organize a collection of these items and help spread cheer.

The Birthday Boutique Clothing Drive

Our mobile fashion truck, The Birthday Boutique, accompanies us to our group birthday celebrations each month. The birthday recipients get to “shop” on the boutique. All shoppers receive a new duffel bag, two/three new outfits, and a Bev’s Basics Kit (underwear, socks, pajamas).

Gift Card Collection Drive

Our teenagers have very specific birthday requests, and gift cards help us purchase those items and serve as great gifts themselves. You can help support these request by collecting gift cards.

Champion of Cheer - Student Leader Initiative

A great way for our youth to learn the value of giving to the community! Champions of Cheer are youth (K-12) who are selected through an application process. These young leaders will complete a leadership development training, in age appropriate groupings, with Beverly’s Birthdays staff. They will then individually design and implement a fundraising project in their community to benefit Beverly’s Birthdays. The group will present their projects at a luncheon/award ceremony. Next cycle is Fall 2022.
