A Birthday Wish is collecting new and very gently used books for young readers ages 1-10. Books will be included with birthday wishes throughout the year. Additional books will be donated to children in foster care who visit courthouses throughout New Jersey.
Currently, our first Birthday Books pilot program is underway at the new child waiting room in the Union County Courthouse Cherry Street Annex. Thanks to a very generous grant to A Birthday Wish, this staffed child waiting room was outfitted with the most current sensory toys and materials, creating a safe and nurturing environment for children in foster care, ages 3 to 10.
Each child who visits the child waiting area will have the opportunity to pick books to take home with them, increasing access to books and encouraging literacy development for young children.
If you would like more information about donating books, please contact us.
