Due to a lack of funding, the shelters are not able to provide many resources in the name of celebrations. As a result, the mass majority of the children living in the shelter miss out on some of the most memorable childhood experiences. Every child should be able to have a memorable birthday party. Celebrations enhance overall happiness, social skills, self-esteem and on the most basic level they give the kids something to look forward to and remember.
Your donation would go directly to the purchase of games, toys, arts and crafts, bead sets, jewelry kits, and other activities for children living in a NYC shelter.
