My project was for the children of the Bridgeville Area Food Bank. There were 44 children altogether, 22 were under the age of 10 and 22 were over the age of 10. I wanted the families of these children to have a stress free birthday, so I put together birthday bags.
I contacted various businesses in the Bridgeville area requesting donations for these children. Then I collected or purchased the following items;
Age appropriate gift Box of cake mix Can of icing
Various small treat items
CD recording of “Happy Birthday”
Homemade birthday card filled with donations from various restaurants
I put these items into a decorative gift bag, labeled it with the family’s assigned food bank number, age and gender. These gift bags were handed out to the children the month of their birthday.
