Giving Back Through Birthdays

| by Bert Armstrong

"Katie and Jason Weeks have always enjoyed hosting parties. When they celebrate their children’s birthdays, they look forward to surrounding their kids with friends. They don’t look forward to adding dozens of new toys to their children’s collection. So, from the beginning, the Weeks decided their children’s parties would evolve around opportunities to give back. 

"For their son Ian’s third, fourth and fifth birthdays, the Weeks family collected 200 books for Book Harvest and Read and Feed, nearly 2,000 diapers for the Dorothy Mae Hall Women’s Center, and $600 worth of toys and art supplies for the Me Fine Foundation, which provides assistance for critically ill children and their families at North Carolina partner hospitals."
