Children need and deserve to feel special, especially on their special day--their birthday. We know that helping children feel special is an important part of feeling self-confident and capable of facing life's challenges. But if your family is homeless or impoverished, your special day may not feel so special. That's where Bright Blessings LKN comes in. We work to see that all the children in our community have the opportunity to feel special on their birthdays. We provide a bag of specially selected, colorfully wrapped birthday gifts for these children, grades K-12. In addition we provide them with a hygiene kit and bag of healthy snacks. And this year, with COVID changing so much of our lives, we are sending each child a birthday party kit for the family. Included in this kit is a cake mix, can of frosting, birthday napkins and candles. Let the celebration begin! Let that special feeling last throughout the year!
