Birthday Closet

Birthday presents for the children in Racine County's foster care system

We collect new toys for birthday presents for the children in Racine County’s foster care system.

Each foster child will receive a birthday card with a certificate to pick out a toy or gift card for their birthday. We want them to feel special on their birthday. This is their special day and no one can take that away from them.

Each child will also receive a Birthday Bag filled with: cake mix, frosting, aluminum pan, candles, party themed paper products; to provide fixings for an at home birthday party.

– Community members: You can donate new toys, $20 gift cards, treat coupons, or birthday cards.

– Foster parents: Make sure we have updated information on the kids in your home, including their birthdate and your address so we can be sure they get a card.
