What We Do.....
The Gifted Crate believes that birthday celebrations are a crucial developmental milestone for all children. Children placed in foster care have experienced some type of trauma or disruption to their home life and deserve to feel celebrated and loved on their special day. Additionally, foster parents often struggle to fund a special birthday celebration. This is where we come in!
The Gifted Crate provides a custom birthday-in-a-box to children and teens in foster care throughout Massachusetts. With the help of DCF, we identify these children along with their likes and interests. Our birthday crates include a boxed cake mix, frosting, candles, plates, napkins, and customized gifts based on that child's wishes.
