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.
Types of Collections for a Cause
Birthday Cheer Bin Toy Collection Drive
We distribute Birthday Cheer Bins (present packages) to over 4,300 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.
Itty Bity Birthday Cheer Baby Supply Drive
We distribute newborn care packages, Itty Bitty Birthday Cheer Bins, to over 600 expecting mothers in need annually. We are always in need of specific baby care items for our packages.
Birthday in a Bag Supply Drive
We distribute birthday party supply packages to over 1,000 families annually. We are always in need of specific paper products, icing, and cake mix to support this program.
Happy Hygiene Kits
We service over 2,000 tweens/teens annually and we like to include Happy Hygiene Kits in all their Birthday Cheer Bins. We are always in need of specific toiletry/hygiene items to support this initiative.
Bev's Basics Kits
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 (pajamas, socks, and underwear).

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.
Snack Pack Collection Drive
Our children are all dealing with one of the humbling consequences of poverty, and that is food insecurity. We include in our Birthday Cheer Bins snack items to serve as a fun birthday treat, but also a needed item for the family. You can help support this initiative by collecting specific snack items.
