Birthday Party in a Bag

Make a Child’s Birthday a Special One!

In order to make birthdays special for the many children we serve, the Pantry assembles a “Birthday in a Bag” for children ages 2 through 9. You can create a complete birthday party using the list below, or donate a quantity of any item, indicating it is for the Birthday Bags. We also welcome age appropriate birthday gifts to add to our Birthday in a Bag kits.

  • One cake mix
  • One frosting
  • One party game
  • One package balloons
  • One cake decorating item (sprinkles, gel, etc.)
  • Six party hats
  • Six paper plates, cups, napkins
  • Six party treats (not necessarily six packages)
  • Six loot gags
  • Nine birthday candles (or one numeric candle)

All Party Bags need to be labeled for a boy or girl. If you use a numeric candle, please note that age on the bag. Please try to match color schemes/party themes.
