Join JCC Greater Boston on Martin Luther King Jr. Day as we make birthday wishes come true for New England children experiencing homelessness and their families.

We will be decorating handmade cards and packing up Birthdays-in-a-Box filled with all of the supplies a family would need to celebrate their child's birthday with joy.

In addition, a portion of the proceeds from the J Cafe on MLK Day will go to Birthday Wishes, so be sure to stop by for lunch or a snack.

For families with children 3-9 yrs.


Birthday Wishes makes a difference in the lives of homeless children and their families by bringing them the joy of a birthday party. Birthday parties provide the opportunity for reflection, celebration, and hope. They are a common event in the lives of most families, but for children experiencing homelessness, families may be unable to maintain their routines and rituals. Birthday Wishes ensures that children are not denied this important rite of passage simply because of their living situation.

What to Expect
Children will be invited, along with a parent or caregiver, to assemble a Birthday-in-a-Box kit from the items in our assembly lines and to create handmade birthday cards to include in each box. The activity and experience should take approximately 20 minutes.

One box per family. To find out about more ways that you can get involved in social action with your family, visit bostonjcc.org/action or contact [email protected]

This event is free for families, but pre-registration is required.
