Approximately 30 parents and children with Shalom Baby, a local outreach program of the Jewish Federation of Greater Charlotte, gathered at Birthday Blessings to connect socially through community service.

This energetic group arrived eager to laugh, work, and play—all in a day’s job for busy moms and dads!  Kids and grown-ups alike brought with them bags full of donations of gifts, party supplies, and tons of fantastic favors for goodie bags.  The children gathered around tables and worked in small groups together or with their parents in assembly-line fashion to fill party favor bags.

In all, the group donated and prepared over 100 treat-filled bags that have since delivered lots of birthday cheer to homeless kids across our greater Charlotte community.

Said project organizer Debby Weiss, “Everyone really enjoyed helping for such a great cause.  It is such a wonderful thing Birthday Blessings is doing, and we look forward to helping out again.”

Our biggest thanks to all of the Shalom Baby kids and parents who so generously contributed!
