What is a Birthday Box?

A Birthday Box is an all inclusive kit that helps children in foster care celebrate their special day. When children enter the foster care system the immediate priority is their safety. In the mix of the chaos of entering a new place or group home, children’s birthdays can get overlooked. The goal behind the Birthday Box program is to ensure that every child in foster care can feel seen and appreciated on their birthday.
