Birthday Bags

Sometimes, in the chaos of a child entering foster care or changing foster homes, birthdays fall through the cracks.  It is especially important that during this confusing time, all children feel celebrated on their big day.  The Junior League was made aware of this need and came up with a plan to help foster families in this situation.   Junior League members collected cake mix, icing, cupcake liners, party banners, party hats, plates, utensils, table cloths, balloons, party favors and anything you may need to throw an amazing birthday party.  All supplies are packed in a giant gift bag and then distributed by CASA to the foster families.  Instead of frantically rushing around trying to throw together a last minute birthday party, the foster family can now focus on loving the child, and helping them to adjust to their new surroundings.
