Inaugural Boo Bash at Mothers & Children Housing Ministry in Cabarrus

CONCORD, NC – Staci Powell and a group of her friends from Providence Baptist Church adopted Birthday Blessings’ first party at the Mothers and Children Housing Ministry in Cabarrus County on October 13th. This Halloween-happy volunteer group brought an array of costumes for our dress-up Birthday Boo Bash. The children especially enjoyed playing the parts of Spider Man, Iron Man and Dorothy from The Wizard of Oz, ruby slippers and all!

They kept the party going with a rousing game of pin the nose on the jack-o-lantern.  The Providence Baptist group also brought supplies so young and old could make their own beautiful, comfy fleece pillows.  While making the pillows, a 6-year-old boy remarked that he could not wait to sleep with his because it was so soft and fluffy.

Following a meal of delicious pizza, the group enjoyed devouring festive cupcakes made by a 12-year-old volunteer.  All the kids received jack-o-lantern goody bags filled with trinkets and sweet treats.

When Birthday Blessings Volunteer Coordinator CJ Sammonds asked if they had fun, the kids all screamed “Yes!”  One little girl gleefully replied that the party was a “super fun time.”

Another great Birthday Blessings celebration with some super fun children!

Every October, Birthday Blessings and its volunteer groups host “Birthday Boo Bash” parties at homeless shelters across the region.  Most children living in transitional housing programs or emergency shelters aren’t able to participate in traditional holiday activities like dressing up and going door to door for fun treats.  Birthday Blessings is proud to bring Trick-or-Treat fun and Halloween festivities to children and families experiencing homelessness during our annual Boo Bash celebrations.
