The joy of a birthday celebration is something every child should experience. Milton’s Craft Bakers has ventured to make that opportunity accessible to children experiencing homelessness in nineteen markets across the country by partnering with The Birthday Party Project. In addition to a financial contribution, Milton’s will be supporting the organization’s monthly birthday parties by providing cauliflower crust pizzas for all to enjoy.
“Both Milton’s Craft Bakers and The Birthday Party Project believe that joy changes lives, which is why we are thrilled to partner with and support the incredible work that The Birthday Party Project is doing,” said John Reaves, Chief Executive Officer of Milton’s. “Every child, no matter their circumstance, should experience the joy of a birthday party, and we know that pizza and cake are an important part of the celebration. It’s an honor for Milton’s to help bring smiles to kids’ faces by way of our delicious pizzas.”
There are more than 2.5 million children in the United States living in a shelter each year, a press release stated. The Birthday Party Project aims to bring a level of normalcy to the day-to-day by not letting milestones like birthdays go unnoticed. To date, the organization has celebrated more than 24,000 birthday kids and hosted more than 2,600 birthday parties, with 65,000 kids attending.
The Birthday Party Project is the newest charitable partner for Milton’s, joining a list that includes Project H.O.O.D and City of Hope. Milton’s stated it will share additional opportunities to engage with and support The Birthday Party Project in the coming months.
“At The Birthday Party Project, we believe that every child deserves to be seen, known, and celebrated—especially on their birthday. We are so excited to bring Milton’s Craft Bakers onboard as one of our partners to help spread more joy through tasty food that brings people together to celebrate some very deserving kids,” said Wade Lairsen, CEO of The Birthday Party Project.
We applaud these two organizations for their ongoing efforts.
