Check out our pictures from the last service project! We created a “birthday party in a bag” for kids who are living at the Meta House, where their moms are undergoing treatment for addiction.
We created dozens of hand-made birthday cards.
We got to hear from a staff member of the Meta House who told us more about their organization. The kids had a chance to listen and ask questions of her.
Then we assembled our birthday bags. Each one included a hand-made card from the kids, gift, birthday cake mix, frosting, balloons, and candles.
At the end, we enjoyed some birthday cake of our own!
