St. Louis, MO, January 13, 2015 --(PR.com
)-- Sweet Celebrations, a volunteer-led non-profit organization that throws birthday parties for homeless children, recently hosted its 100th birthday party. The recipient of the unique St. Louis Blues cake was a young girl at Youth In Need, a non-profit child and family services agency headquartered in St. Charles, Mo.
Sweet Celebrations was founded in 2013 by Beth Brockling, who provides personalized birthday parties for homeless children at nine shelters in the St. Louis area. Brockling is a volunteer at Big Brothers Big Sisters of Eastern Missouri.
“This is a huge accomplishment for Sweet Celebrations, which has quickly grown over the past year and achieved 501(c) (3) tax exempt non-profit organization status,” said Brockling. “We have had lots of success stories this year, and donations are being made by many local businesses to support our mission.” Brockling added that Sweet Celebrations continues to recruit for cake donors, as well as delivery volunteers, to help with the organization’s rapid expansion.
