Simple Needs GA’s My Birthday Matters program is turning five years old! We hope you can drop by our Marietta warehouse on April 13 to don a party hat and celebrate with us! (OK, party hats aren’t mandatory!)
The Open House/MBM Birthday Party is from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. We’ll be giving tours, chatting with old and new friends and introducing others to our MBM and other programs. Clients will be on hand to share their stories as well. We’ll have some yummy snacks, as well as sandwiches and salads generously donated by Newk’s Eatery, 1975 Cobb Parkway in Kennesaw. Thank you, Newk’s!
If you plan to attend and/or need the address to our warehouse, please email firstname.lastname@example.org to help us with our planning. Feel free to bring friends or colleagues who might be interested in learning more about how our work benefits people in need.
About My Birthday Matters
Five years ago, Simple Needs GA launched a program to bring new presents and basic necessities to disadvantaged children celebrating their birthdays. With the generous support of our donors and volunteers, our My Birthday Matters program has brought smiles to the faces of hundreds of children in need across Cobb County. In 2018 alone, the fast-growing program helped approximately 256 children, up from 217 the year before.
“Today is my daughter’s birthday. She is nine years old and is really excited and extremely happy on her day. As a parent, I am in tears, because this is so important to a child. It’s absolutely great that there are others who care!” — parent of a student at Sawyer Road Elementary.
“I want to thank you and your volunteers so much for such wonderful gifts for my son. He really enjoyed his books! May all of you be blessed for putting such a big smile on his face on his birthday!”
