We are celebrating the three year anniversary of Cake, Candles & Confetti Inc. - a non for profit organization that brings birthday parties to homeless shelter children in Upstate New York.
The parties have everything from arts and crafts, ball toss games, bracelet making, and more. Each party is as unique as the birthday kids and customized to fit their individual personalities.
The kids love opening their presents and celebrating with their family and friends!
We have cakes donated each month from all over: A huge thank you to Debbie Coye Cakes, Coccadotts Cake Shop and Mazzone Catering, to name a few. Not only do the kids devour their cakes, but they loving making wishes as they blow out the candles.
When the party is all said and done – each kid is able to take home a little goodie bag. The kids LOVE the goodie bags!
NEW THIS YEAR:
Act of Joy
In addition to the monthly birthday parties – we started a sister program called Act of Joy!
We reach out to the community to see who needs an ‘act of joy‘ in their life. Our goal is to help two families or organizations a month and support them with goods that they might need.
We are proud to announce in June 2017 we were able to help:
Saratoga County Animal Shelter - We supplied them with dogs beds, toys, cat scratching posts and treats!
A local family in need through HATAS – We supplied them with new pillows, sheets, beddings, towels and toiletries!
If you know of a organization or a community member in need – please reach out to us so that we can help!
We couldn’t do any of this without the help of volunteers and our community; who sponsor and support us in every way. From the bottom of our hearts - Thank You!
We are always looking for party volunteers and sponsors of all kinds!
