Bright Blessings Welcomes Carly Behrmann as our Student Birthday Program Manager!

Carly Behrmann took on a huge role as our Volunteer Student Birthdays Program Manager in mid-Novemeber of 2010. Carly has been hard at work ensuring that the many local homeless children in Charlotte area schools receive Birthday gifts, goody bags or a “Fit to Celebrate” Party Pack.

In partnership with A Child’s Place, transient homeless students across Charlotte-Mecklenburg Schools are identified for our Student Birthdays Project. These children do not live in area shelters but rather in motels, campgrounds, and other transient situations. Upon receiving the child’s name, age, gender, Carly and a group of dedicated volunteers start packing up goody bags for the Birthday Student. All student birthday packages include gifts, as well as care essentials and a blanket. These party packs and gift bags are dropped off anonymously and given to the child through social workers at the schools.

Carly and husband, Chris, go way back with the founders of Bright Blessings, John & Amy Cervantes. John and Chris were college classmates! The Behrmann family volunteered and attended events when possible for the past few years, but until recently, Carly’s full time pharmaceutical sales position, along with family responsibilities, kept Carly from being as involved as she wished.

Much like the Cervantes family, (whose family service project blossomed into this national 501(c)3 nonprofit) Carly wanted to get her children in the spirit of giving and thought Bright Blessings (formerly Birthday Blessings) was the perfect opportunity.

The Student Birthday Program is lucky to have individuals, churches, schools, and other organizations come together to donate materials and time to help make the program a huge success. If interested in getting involved with Carly and the Student Birthday Program, email contact@brightblessingsusa.org or call (704)846-BDAY!
