The ways we spread birthday cheer.
We offer our services based on our partners and families’ unique needs.
We host group birthday celebrations at our agency partners facilities for children who have a birthday during that month/season. The guests are the other children in the program and their families (if applicable). The celebrations are staffed by volunteers and the parties include food, dessert, games, entertainment, and treat bags.
BIRTHDAY CHEER BINS
All of the children we serve receive a Birthday Cheer Bin on their birthday. This bin is filled with gender and age appropriate gifts, which we can customize. All of our bins include a new book and a new toothbrush/toothpaste.
ITTY BITTY BIRTHDAY CHEER
This program provides birthday cheer bins filled with essential items for newborn babies. We also partner with agencies to provide group baby showers for mothers-to-be.
In collaboration with The Education Partnership, we provide teachers in low-income elementary and primary schools throughout the Greater Pittsburgh region with their own Classroom Cheer Kit. This kit contains everything a teacher would need to recognize their students' birthdays.
Pre-assembled bags filled with all of the necessary items to host a small birthday celebration (cake mix, frosting, plates, cups, napkins, party hats, etc.) to our agency partners that they can then distribute to families in-need. Primarily this program services families who are clients of community food banks.
THE BIRTHDAY BOUTIQUE
Our mobile fashion truck adds birthday cheer in a wonderful way! Children and their families can "shop" for free clothing and items that make them look and feel great!
