Charity of the Month
August - September 2020
Birthday in a Box MHK is bringing Birthday Celebrations to less fortunate kids in Manhattan. Parents or guardians will sign up for this service and a Birthday Box will be delivered to them a few weeks before their birthday so that they can give their child a birthday party. The box will include a coupon for a free cake from HyVee, birthday candles, plates, cups, party hats, and other party supplies. They will also include a $20 gift card to Walmart or Target so the parent or guardian will be able to go 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.
The FRSC raises funds and awareness for our designated Charity of the Month, promoting the charity across platforms and taking donations online and at monthly events. The Charity of the Month program is designed to help community organizations with point-in-time needs outside the annual grant distribution cycle.
