Connetquot's Birthday Boxes

Connetquot's Birthday Boxes

Last year, second-graders at Connetquot made “birthday boxes” for the Birthday Wishes organization, donating birthday items for homeless children who cannot afford their own birthday parties. These brightly wrapped “birthday in a box” packages are filled with everything necessary for a great birthday celebration.

This year, the entire school got involved. A total of 32 birthday boxes were donated from Connetquot’s kindergarten, first-grade and second-grade classes. The boxes will be distributed to needy families along with a bag of wrapped gifts for the birthday celebrant.

Sydney Berni, a second-grade student in Melissa Love’s class said of the experience, “I liked making the boxes because it helps others.”
