Congrats to Birthday Box Club for being honored as an outstanding community volunteers!
Team Members: Joan Banks & Birthday Box Club Volunteers
Nominating Organization: Orangewood Children’s Foundation
Honoree Category: Human & Community
Why Nominated: Two years ago as small bible study group that was looking to spread their reach asked what they could do for the girls with Orangewood. Taking the Birthday Party in a Box idea and twisting it to be something special for teens, the Birthday Club was born. Every quarter, these ladies coordinate a day where volunteers get together and package a personalized birthday box for every girl in one of the Orangewood programs. The girls receive the boxes on their birthday, which for some is the only birthday recognition they may get. Orangewood truly appreciates the time the ladies spend shopping, packing and delivering the boxes, and how special the boxes make the girls feel on their birthdays.
