Drew's Birthday Angels
Because EVERY child deserves to grow up having a special day.
Something exciting and new is starting in 2021 at Helping Hand Rescue Mission!
Every child deserves to have a special day on their birthday. Imagine being a parent, working all week to make ends meet and just barely covering bills and expenses--sometimes struggling to do even that. Your child's birthday is coming up, and there's not much left over to get them a present--let alone the money to buy supplies to have a party. This is reality for many loving families right in our area.
The Drew's Birthday Angels program provides families with party supplies, cake mix, icing, goodie bags, and a special birthday present that corresponds to a child's interest on the week of the child's birthday. Parents can simply fill out the online form using the link here to sign up.
https://form.jotform.com/203524028392047? Helping with this need is a direct, poignant way to tell families right in our community that we care. Making sure a child has a birthday celebration helps them to grow up with joy in their lives, knowing that they are special, loved, valued, and appreciated. Socioeconomic status should never get in the way.
Together, we are changing the lives of the children in our community. Your donations on this page go directly to buying presents and facilitating this program for children in need. We are so grateful for every bit of help we receive, it truly matters to these children and their families. It's not always the big things that impact lives--sometimes it's the small ones.
This program is organized with Love & Special Wishes by Kim & Johanna, of Helping Hand Rescue Mission and Deeds4Drew, respectively. It's dedicated in loving memory of Drew Nugent.
