Smile Maker

Last week, this precious little girl came in with her mother to pick up her birthday box. If she’s smiling now, just wait until she opens her box!

Children enrolled in the Children’s Birthday Project receive presents for both their birthday and Christmas, from ages 3-12. We are able to provide this service for 700 DuPage and Kane County children in low income families.

Children like this little girl receive a birthday box filled with:

  • 6-15 new toys
  • 6 new books
  • 1 game
  • Stuffed animals
  • Party supplies (including cake mix, frosting, themed party plates, hats, etc.)
  • Gifts from their wish list
  • School supplies
  • Filler gifts

This project brings joy to 700 children in their formative years. Low income parents are so grateful for the service because we are able to provide the special surprises and gifts they cannot afford for their children. And the best part? All of this is possible thanks to generous donors and volunteers! It is great for these families to know that someone cares!

How can you help? It only costs $54 a year to sponsor a child and make every birthday a special one! If you are interested, email us at or call 630-221-8340.
