Maltby Food Bank has a great program that helps many homeless in need. A special opportunity at this food bank is collecting birthday bags.
“Birthday Bag” is a kit for needy children ages 1 – 12. The kit includes everything needed to hold a birthday party from decorative plates, napkins, balloons, cake mix, frosting, candles, put together in a birthday-themed gift bag. Every child desires a birthday party no matter what situation they were born into. If you want to include a gift too, here is a link to some birthday gift ideas.
Birthday Bags can be dropped off at the Maltby Food Bank on Tuesdays or Thursday mornings. They accept donations Tuesdays 10:00 – 1:00 and Thursday 9 – 12:00.
All the items are available at the dollar store. Total cost between $8-10 plus whatever gift you want to include.
