Community Support and Recognition
Mother Daughter Duo Donate 90 Toys
Our hearts were warmed last month when Jen Triny and her young daughter came to our office with a 90 toys donation. We are so grateful for their generous donation!

Many of our adult volunteers have made giving back to Birthday Dreams a family affair, recruiting spouses, grandparents and friends to join in volunteer activities. As an organization focused on children, we especially love it when our adult volunteers involve their children. Over the years kids of all ages have gotten involved from donating their birthday to raise toys/funds to hosting lemonade stands to helping to decorating party hats and goodies bags. Whatever the activity we LOVE to see kids helping kids - and are thankful to the parents who make that possible!
