Youth Villages Birthday Bags

Our next monthly birthday bag for girls at Youth Villages/Germaine Lawrence will be at the beginning of August.  Every month we pack a birthday party for about 20 girls in a bag for one of the dorms to celebrate the month’s birthdays.  If you’d like to donate items, each month we need:

  • 4 boxes of cake mix and 4 containers of frosting
  • plates, napkins and plastic forks for 20
  • birthday candles, cupcake liners, candy or sprinkles to decorate cupcakes
  • something fun—stickers, temporary tattoos, bubbles, light sticks for 20

Drop donations in the bucket in the narthex. Thanks!
