St. Charles Head Start, Lake Park & Army Trail Birthday Boxes

Today, HSP delivered birthday boxes to needy children with November birthdays at Lake Park Elementary, Army Trail Elementary School in Addison, and Valley View Head Start in St. Charles. The gifts were delivered by our dedicated volunteers Bill Fehling and Dean Senne. It is thanks to the generosity of our donors that allows us to provide memorable birthdays to the needy children throughout DuPage and Kane.

Through this program, HSP provides a beautiful birthday box for 925 children living in poverty. Each child enrolled in the program receives 6-10 new gifts; 4-7 new, age-appropriate books; numerous filler gifts, such as stuffed animals; and a “Party-in-a-Bag” kit, which includes all of the things that make birthdays fun, such as a cake, candles, and party supplies, so a child can throw a great party on their special day. If you would like to learn more about our Children’s Birthday Project, please feel free to call us at (630) 221-8340.  Here’s to happy children on their birthdays!
