Welcome to The Birthday Box!

The Birthday Box is a “party in a box” that is anonymously delivered to children
who may not otherwise have a celebration on their special day. We work with partner organizations to provide children in their programs with Happy Birthdays.

We collect toys and party supplies for kids 0-16 Years and create Birthday Boxes.

We accept only new and unopened toys and supplies. We would love to reuse your medium-sized card board boxes in good condition and recycle them into Birthday Box delivery boxes. Please contact us to arrange a pick up or drop off of any boxes you don’t need.

We will gladly accept:

  • Toys or gift cards (We provide gifts for children ages 0-16 yrs.)
  • Bakery or grocery store gift cards
  • Birthday wrapping paper
  • Corrugated brown boxes medium-sized
  • Packaged candles, new packages of party plates, napkins and/or forks
  • Party decorations (blowers, party hats…)

I want to thank you both so very much for providing us with The Birthday Boxes for our Children. We are very grateful and thankful for your help and support.

Thank you very much for the “Birthday Boxes” that you deliver to our agency, specifically to the children in the “Hospitality House Program” and “Bernice’s Place”, our Children’s Program. You have no idea how much joy you bring not only to the “birthday child”, but to the whole family.
Sister Maryanne Tracey, SC, Coordinator of the Hospitality House Program
The birthday box program has been a tremendous addition to our Early Childhood hallways. The opportunity for young children to give back is priceless and teaches them an important lesson. The program is in sync with the values we teach in school and we love when the box is full of goodies to be delivered to those in need.

I want to say thank you for the fantastic box you gave Molly a couple weeks ago. Her family had suffered a loss the day before Molly’s birthday and it really meant a lot to them to have something to celebrate and a way celebrate Molly’s birthday. And it really meant a lot to Molly too, I am very thankful that you have opened up your program to us and are bringing such a wonderful gift to all of our children.”

Thank you!
