The Family Place, Free

Whole Foods Market Preston Forest and Highland Park stores are proud to partner with The Birthday Party Project for a family-friendly, two-hour community volunteer opportunity for adults and children of all ages!

The Birthday Party Project hosts monthly birthday parties at shelters with which they have partnered in an effort for each homeless child in North Texas and beyond to experience a birthday party and have the opportunity on their special day to feel celebrated.  Together we will volunteer as Birthday Enthusiasts and play a vital role in the success of the party, complete with cake, candles, balloons, snacks, games, and a wrapped gift for the birthday boy or girl. 

Afterwards, dinner is on us! Whole Foods Market will provide a build-your-own salad bar with all the fixings. We'll "eat a rainbow" in honor of the Whole Kids Foundation and in celebration of healthy eating and healthy communities.
