Manos Felices~Happy Hands at Hancock; Birthday in a Box

Most of us have happy memories of our childhood birthdays, but many of the children attending Manos Felices had never had a birthday party or cake until Communities Together started Birthday in a Box. Imagine a child having to watch his or her birthday come and go, with no celebration to mark the day?

St. Paul’s is the proud, annual March supporter for Birthday-in-a-Box!  If you would like to donate one or more of the following items for their Birthday Box, please contact Cheryl Means, Outreach & Mission Committee Chair, who will collect the items for delivery to their party at the end of March. We thank you for your support of this important program.

(Please note that we plan on 20 children in attendance at the party)

*sheet cake or cupcakes

*Hoodsie ice cream cups

*paper plates, napkins, plastic forks

*juice boxes

*one box of birthday candles

*one bag of balloons (not inflated)

*one plastic table cover (6 foot table)

*two large garbage bags

*boys birthday cards

*girls birthday cards

*one small party favor (not to exceed $1. per child)

Easter plants: Donations for plants for the Easter altar will be accepted now through Palm Sunday, April 9.  Donations can be made in memory of loved ones or in honor of someone special.  Order forms are available on the table in the narthex.
