NYACK, N.Y. -- Residents, teens, volunteers or just about anyone who would like to help create a special birthday for kids in need can take part in the Create and Wrap event at the Nyack Center on Saturday.

The event will take place from 10 a.m.-noon at the center, 58 Depew Ave.

The Nyack Center believes every child should have a special birthday celebration and these boxes are designed to accomplish that.

Volunteers will pack each box with a box cake mix, a can of frosting, birthday candles, a birthday banner, a book, an age-appropriate gift and at least two or three homemade cards.

The Nyack Center will distribute the boxes throughout the year through one of its many programs for those in need. This is a family-friendly project that engages both parent and child in purchasing the gift for a child in need and coming together to wrap and pack the box while putting their own personal touches on the cards.

The Nyack Center serves Nyack and the larger community of Rockland County by supporting children, youths and families through educational and recreational programs. The nonprofit organization provides a welcoming gathering space for before- and after-school programs, cultural celebrations and community events.

Call 845-358-2600 for more information. Click here to learn more about the center.

The Create and Wrap Birthday Boxes project is part of Volunteer New York!’s 2016 MLKDay communitywide event and is just one of the family-friendly ways to serve the community this year and to honor and remember the message of the Rev. Martin Luther King Jr.
