CHARLOTTE, NC – On March 16, the Fireball swim team from Mecklenburg Aquatic Club headed out to Monkey Joe’s in Pineville to celebrate the end of their season and participate in a service project on behalf of Birthday Blessings.

Our Student Birthdays Volunteer Program Manager, Terri Springer, gave a short presentation to the team and their parents, and the fun-filled evening was rounded out with the group assembling classroom party kits and goodie bags.  “They were having fun as they did it and were very respectful,” said Terri Springer.  “They brought in all kinds of goodies!”

This caring group of kids donated 120 party favors and supplies, in addition to filling 58 goodie bags.

“These homeless children, who have so little, get a huge boost of self-esteem by having their birthday celebrated with their friends and, for one day, being givers to their friends,” said Dave Zatz, the parent who organized this important service project.

Go Fireballs, and thanks for your support!
