Babylon Elementary School second-grade students in Stacey Aprea’s class are brightening birthdays for homeless children through a unique community service venture. 

The initiative, which was coordinated through the nonprofit organization Birthday Wishes, helps provide birthday parties for children who may not be able to celebrate with their families due to homelessness. For the project, the students collected items for a 7-year-old girl, including presents, party decorations and favors, as well as supplies to make and embellish a cake.

The items, which were wrapped in a decorated pink box, were delivered to Birthday Wishes by class grandparent Barbara Altman. The class plans to make another birthday-in-a-box for a 7-year-old boy in the spring.
