Birthday Buddies Program Starts for 2021

Starting January 15, every preschool child at Cornerstone will have the opportunity to celebrate their birthday with their classmates!

As a Birthday Buddy volunteer, you will show Cornerstone children how special they are during their birthday month by creating a “Birthday Party in a Box” for a classroom celebration! You will purchase or provide the following birthday-themed items for our teachers to host a party for approximately 20 children:

  • Classroom party decor, such as 20 party hats and 2 table cloths.
  • A commercially prepared nut-free snack, such as mini cupcakes or twinkies.
  • Individually packaged kid-friendly drinks, such as juice boxes or infused water boxes.
  • A fun (but also quick and prep free) activity, such as Pin the Tail on the Donkey, individualized Make-A-Face sticker sheets, or coloring pages.

The Birthday Buddies program repeats once a month, in order to celebrate all the children who have birthdays within each month. Birthday Buddies are a huge help to our teachers and staff in making these monthly celebrations happen!

  • Potential Birthday Buddy reaches out to Cornerstone and is matched to a month and a classroom.
  • Birthday Buddies email us the list of items they’d like to include.
  • Cornerstone approves the list.
  • Birthday Buddies deliver the items to Cornerstone.
  • Teachers host the party and Cornerstone shares photos and thanks from the classroom with the Birthday Buddy.
