With a group of volunteers you can help packing birthday boxes for children of deprived families. With your help, all children, no matter their background, can celebrate their birthday with a smile.
About 61.000 children in the Netherlands cannot celebrates their birth dates because their families cannot afford a birthday cake, present and treats. Stichting Jarige Job supports parents who depend on the Foodbank by means of providing them a birthday box for children at the age of 4-12 years. In the week of the child's birthday, they receive a personalised birthday box with presents, decorations, treats, and a birthday cake.
Stichting Jarige Job is located at the Van Nelle Factory, a UNESCO World heritage site. They have two warehouses at the right end of the complex, labeled K and L. You can also ask reception for directions. You can park your bike next to the warehouses. Make sure to bring some warm clothes in winter. The first time you get here it may take a while for you to find the warehouse. Make sure you arrive on time!
