Last week we wrapped up our 2nd Halloween candy donation drive for Birthday Dreams in Renton and were amazed at the generosity and support of our community. We delivered over 500 lbs. of candy that filled an entire car! When we dropped off the Halloween candy, the program manager Andrea Bates was amazed by the generosity of our Owen’s List members and excited that they can potentially increase the size of each birthday goody bag.
Birthday Dreams is staffed by tireless volunteers who put together small goody bags and birthday in a box kits. Each month they deliver over birthday 500 goody bags for birthday parties in the area. To date, Birthday Dreams and has delivered over 7,000 birthday parties since forming in 2009.
The staff and volunteers said that the candy that Owen’s List delivered is going to enable them to continue making birthdays special for hundreds of more kids this year.
