Can you imagine being a kid and having a birthday with No Cake, No Celebration and No Presents?? We can't either! That is why we created Birthday in a Box MHK!
Birthday in a Box MHK is bringing Birthday Celebrations to less fortunate kids in Manhattan, Kansas. Parents or guardians sign up for this service and a Birthday Box is delivered to them a few weeks before their child's birthday so that they can give their child a birthday party. The box includes a coupon for a free cake from our Manhattan HyVee, birthday candles, plates, cups, napkins, forks, balloons and more. They also include a $20 gift card to Walmart or Target so the parent or guardian is able to purchase their child a birthday gift. We also provide Birthday Treats to the local schools for students to share with their classmates on their birthday. Some students may not be able to afford treats or forget to bring them, so now they can go visit their school social worker and receive treats for their classmates courtesy of Birthday in a Box MHK.
Due to Covid, all of our fundraisers this year have been cancelled. We are needing funds to help continue this program. If you have the means to donate it would be greatly appreciated! Can you even imagine how much happiness you can bring to a child that maybe isn't expecting a birthday cake, party or presents this year?!? We want every child to feel special on their birthday!
Birthday in a Box MHK is a 501(c)3 Non Profit Organization. We have over 350 children in our program and growing. If you would like to learn more or read the blog post that started this program, head over to our website: www.birthdayinaboxmhk.com
