Additional Ways to Host a Superheroes Birthday Party
It's easy to plan a Superheroes Birthday Club volunteer project for your child's birthday party.
Collecting donations isn’t the only way you can help families and children in need. Instead of games or expensive outings, make a Heroes for Children volunteer project the main attraction of your child's birthday party. Talk to your child and choose a service project that is fun and fits his/her interests.
For example:
·         Make cards for children battling cancer. Set up a table with brightly colored paper, stickers, glitter, crayons, and markers. Turn on the party music and let the guests make personalized cards for the hospitalized child.
·         Assemble gift bags filled with goodies for children living in the hospital. Before the party, purchase or collect supplies for the goodie bags. During the party, let kids assemble the bags for HFC to give to hospitalized children.
Whatever volunteerism project you choose, be sure to make the party fun. Compliment the children for their hard work and let them know that they are making a big difference.
Other Ways to Donate- Wish List
Heroes for Children often delivers care packages and toys to the hospitals. If you would like to contribute NEW items to be distributed at the hospital please contact Liesl at ldarr@heroesforchildren.org.
