The Coliseum Entertainment Megaplex
On May 30th, United Way LINC hosted Happy Hour for Happy Birthdays at the Coliseum Entertainment Megaplex. Attendees assembled nearly 100 Birthday Bags for children in the Capital Region.
Families who are struggling financially often give up luxuries like birthday cakes. Items such as disposable cake pans or even birthday candles cannot be purchased with food stamps. These parents find it difficult to tell their children that they can’t afford a birthday cake.
Birthday bags are a simple way to make birthdays happy for these families. These bags will be distributed through shelters and food pantries.
