Birthday Buddies

Do you love to plan parties? Show Cornerstone children how special they are during their birthday month by creating a “Birthday in a Box” for a classroom celebration!  The "Birthday in a Box" is a handmade party package created to serve up approximately 20 preschool-age children, made or paid for by the volunteer. It's up to the volunteer what they want to provide--the box might include printed off coloring sheets of a birthday cake, party hats from Dollar Tree, and cupcakes from Schnucks, for example. Starting in 2021, we'd like the "Birthday in a Box" program to repeat once a month, in order to celebrate all the children who have birthdays within the month. 

This opportunity involves both virtual and in-person aspects. Volunteers will create their "Birthday in a Box" independently outside of the center, but they will be asked to drop it off at the center. Volunteers can work together on this project, but only one will be allowed inside during the drop-off process. 

In light of COVID-19, we are asking all volunteers to wear masks and to social distance while participating in volunteer opportunities at Cornerstone. When volunteers arrive, we will take their temperature and request that they sign a COVID-19 agreement. For the protection of volunteers, staff, and children alike, volunteers are not permitted to have direct contact with children or staff. If necessary, only one volunteer will be allowed in the building at a time, and their indoor access will be limited to sections of the Cornerstone facility where there are no children present.
