Idea 13: Give a Birthday Gift

For every child at First Place, we want their Birthday to be special. Some teachers have a special hat, button or cape the student can wear for the day. The presents are kept in our Birthday Box.

When it's your birthday, you get choose one big present out of the box and then you are given a small bag and you can put as many things in the bag as you can fit.

We seek donations for our Birthday Box all year round for children ages 3 to 12.

Examples of big presents are sports balls such as basketball and footballs, board games, art kits, puzzles, action figures such as Transformers, Wrestling and Star Wars, moon sand, and dolls such as Bratz and Barbie.

Small items are things like finger puppets, small action figures, miniature cars, plastic jewelry, play-doh, small dolls such as Neopets, pencil toppers, keychains, bouncy balls and anything that would fit in your hand.

If you have questions about donating to the Birthday Box contact Lisa Foss at 206 323 6715 or
