Birthday for Fernando
Here is a picture of Fernando. Today is Fernando’s birthday. He’s opening a birthday present that is part of a Birthday Bag he received from a member of Christ Evangelical Presbyterian Church.
Soon after coming to Mission Centers of Houston, Executive Director, Ginger Smith, realized that for many families in her community, a birthday celebration, party or gift of any kind for a child’s birthday was something they could not afford. So, she dreamed up Birthday Bags. Birthday Bags not only contain a birthday gift, but also have cake mix, frosting, candles, a baking pan, paper goods and favors – everything you need for a birthday celebration!
Get Together Table Leaders and Board Members, Frank & Sandy Kampe began coordinating the Birthday Bag project at CEPC several years ago. Members of CEPC have embraced this project and in 2010-2011 provided birthday bags for 313 kids who are served by Mission Centers of Houston’s three Centers.
Happy Birthday, Fernando!
