VOLUNTEER SHIFTS:

Assemble a complete Birthday Bundle to help a local child celebrate their big day in a special way! Drop-off instructions and necessary bundle contents are listed below. You can make as little as 1 Bundle to complete this project.

This project is being coordinated in conjunction with Birthday Bundles CT

ABOUT THIS PROJECT:

Birthday Bundles are a party in a bag! These bundles will be delivered directly to children and include everything needed to celebrate their special day!

Who will receive a Birthday Bundle? 

Bundles will be delivered to children with an upcoming birthday. We are currently working with elementary schools in Greenwich and Stamford, as well as local shelters and agencies that work with children and families. We feel that EVERY child deserves to feel special and have a chance to celebrate their birthday!

How can YOU help?

Assemble a complete birthday bundle! Pack a birthday gift bag or Tupperware bin with the following items:

 

  • Cake mix and frosting
  • Sprinkles or candy toppings
  • Candles
  • Colorful party hats, plates, napkins
  • Decorations/ tablecloth/ banner/ unfilled balloons
  • Aluminum cake tin or cupcake tray/ cupcake liners
  • Small toy/ stuffed animal/ book/ puzzle/ art supplies/ chalk, etc.

 

*Optional amazon wish list to make shopping easier: Birthday Bundles Wish List

Make it fun and spread the word:

 

  • With your team, club, scout troop, organize a covid-friendly collection using sign-up genius to request the items
  • Organize a covid-safe assembling event with your scout troop, club or team
  • To honor your birthday, ask friends and family to contribute a “bundle”
  • Start a monthly tradition with your family to collect items and assemble “bundles” (don’t forget to blast fun party music!)
