MLK Day Community Project for Birthday Wishes

January 20 @ 10:00 am - 12:00 pm

For families with children 3-9 yrs, siblings welcome

No cost

“Life’s most persistent and urgent question is, ‘What are you doing for others?'” – Martin Luther King Jr.

Join JCC Greater Boston on Martin Luther King Jr. Day as we make birthday wishes come true for New England children and their families experiencing homelessness. We will be supporting Birthday Wishes, an organization that makes a difference in the lives of homeless children and their families by bringing them the joy of a birthday party.

Children will be invited, along with a parent or caregiver, to assemble a Birthday-in-a-Box kit from the items in our assembly lines and to create handmade birthday cards to include in each box. The activity and experience should take approximately 20 minutes. One box per family. For more information, contact family@jccgb.org.

This event is free for families, but pre-registration is required. When registering, be sure to select “Young Family” and then “Birthday Wishes with JCC” from the drop down menu.
