My Birthday Matters and other SNGA program needs

(We've updated this signup to include items for many programs and those with whom we collaborate; for general needs, you don't really have to sign up since we need multiples of those. As specific items are purchased, we delete them from the list. As other items are, we delete the names since these are ongoing needs.)

My Birthday Matters is a year-round program for kids (ages 1 through 18) who are homeless. They live in shelters (MUST, Family Promise of Cobb or LiveSafe Resources) or they are considered homeless through the school district which means they live in a hotel or with someone (they don't have their own home). We also provide gifts to the kids of our furniture families for the 12 months after we give them furniture. Often, we give the gifts for those kids all at once when the family moves (and not wait for their birthdays) since they might not have many toys or things for themselves since they were previously homeless.

You can help by purchasing a (new) requested gift for a child. We will post the child's age, birthdate and requested item. The parent or child completes a form with their specific requests, plus their favorite color, animal, characters/themes and their reading preferences (and more). If you have any questions, please contact [email protected]

If the timing works out, you can deliver the gift to our space during a Donation Drive which are held in Marietta the first and third Saturdays of each month (please email for the address) from 10 am to 1pm. Or you can deliver to my home (near Sprayberry HS)... or ship to my home address (email me for that).

Each child receives at least these items in their birthday "packet" (varies depending on the child's age and gender): four larger gifts valued between $20-30 ($80-90 total); a $5-10 gift; several $1-3 items; a stuffed animal; a no-sew fleece blanket; a backpack and other school supplies, including crayons, markers, colored pencils and more; underwear (or diapers) and socks; two coloring books; 5-6 reading books; cupcakes and candles; homemade lollipop.

Thank you for putting a smile on a child's face!
