Thanks for helping with birthday parties

I am currently a senior at North Kingstown High School and for my senior project I worked with an organization called Birthday Wishes. My goal was to provide birthday parties to homeless children in Rhode Island. I presented my idea to the Melrose Avenue School Improvement Team and they were fully on board with the project. I sent letters out to teachers and parents explaining what I was doing and the response was amazing. We were able to collect enough supplies for at least 30 birthday parties. I would like to especially thank Mrs. Melluci, principal of Melrose, the School Improvement Team, and to all the students and their families for their generosity and support. If you would like more information about the organization, visit Birth dayWishes.org. Thank you again for all the support.
