Volunteering for Birthdays Remembered has a positive impact on our community – the Valley of the Sun. It is also a two-way street. Volunteering helps you network, gives you the satisfaction of incorporating service into your life, and gives you new opportunities to build new skills. School clubs and church missions can participate, as well as corporations. Make this world a better place. Volunteer!


The mission of Birthdays Remembered is to provide birthday gift packages for any child in Arizona whose need is identified by a partner agency. Birthdays Remembered will ensure the quality, consistency, and integrity of gifts delivered by attempting to match gifts with the child’s request whenever possible.

What We Do


Birthday packages consist of a gift of the child’s request (up to $25.00 in value), an age appropriate book, small craft items when available, a blank birthday card for the parent to sign, and wrapping paper to wrap the gift. These come inside a fabric bag or backpack for the child to decorate and make their own. Packages will be presented to the parent or caregiver to give to their child. No child should know that their package came from Birthdays Remembered.

We exist because every child has a birthday, but not every family is able to celebrate with a gift.

Birthdays Remembered is a unique 501 (c) 3 nonprofit making birthdays special for children and their families in Arizona by providing gift packages specific to each individual child.

** A recent study showed there are more than 1,600 homeless children in Arizona. They may not have a home, but they do have a birthday.**

Birthdays Remembered delivers over 400 gifts a year to social service agencies, foster agencies, homeless and abuse shelters, schools and government agencies each year.

Please help us make gifts special by donating birthday cards in English or Spanish, wrapping paper, gift bags, NEW books in English or Spanish,  fabric tote bags of any size for both boys and girls. Gifts can also be made special by you joining our team and donating your time to become a Gift Expert!

Your donations of these items or your personal time makes it possible for more children each year to celebrate their birthday with Birthdays Remembered.
