Take Up Your Cross, Inc Programs

Monthly Birthday Gifts

Birthdays are a time to celebrate and reflect on the year gone by. But for many foster youth, birthdays can also be a reminder of a difficult past and an uncertain future. That's why our Monthly Birthday Gifts program is so important. Each month, we hand-deliver a thoughtful gift to every foster youth celebrating a birthday, reminding them that they are valued, loved, and not forgotten. Whether it's a small token of appreciation or a much-needed boost of self-esteem, our birthday gifts bring a smile to the faces of some of the most deserving young people in our community. Find a child who shares your birthday ensuring that every child in foster care can feel seen and appreciated on their birthday.
