Student Council has decided to support the charity, Birthday Dreams, as our service project for the year. Birthday Dreams is a local non-profit that provides birthday parties for less fortunate kids. A birthday comes with an amazing cake, plenty of presents for a lucky child, and goodie bags for guests. Each birthday party brings joy to kids of all ages who have never had a day all to themselves. We are helping this non-profit by collecting kid-themed wrapping paper, ribbons, and bows. We need you! We are asking Maplewood Heights’ families to donate these items between May 15th to May 24th. This is a short time period, so please donate soon!
We are also hosting a Birthday Card and Hat Making Party on May 24th from 9:00 – 9:45am in the Commons. We want you and your child to come help us make cards and hats that Birthday Dreams will use at the parties they provide to families. All supplies are provided. Come and be creative with us!
Donations May 15th – May 24th.
