For transient homeless students, our birthday and care packages are delivered anonymously to local schools. Elementary age students receive birthday treats to share with classmates, giving them a chance to feel confident and a sense of normalcy among peers. Middle and high school students receive a birthday bag with supplies and special sweets to take ‘home’ and celebrate with family.  All students served also receive new presents, books and academic supplies, healthy snacks, as well as a care & comfort set.
