We are kicking off a donation drive for birthday items for the local food shelf. Families who use our local food shelf are aften unable to buy extra items that make a birthday special like cake mix, frosting, candles, paper plate and cups. We have also learned that people around the world celebrate in other ways, so we are also looking to collect rice, noodles, cookie mix and pizza crust mix. If you would like to donate, we will collect items until April 21st.
Thank you for your GENEROSITY!
**On a side note, as I went searching for an online resource on birthday customs across the world, I stumbled upon the portal Great Websites for Kids, a site from the American Library Association. It holds categorized links to over a hundred websites for children, including ABCYa, Time for Kids, Bedtime Math, Story Place and much more. A great place to get lost and learn a lot!
