HOUSTON – Children aren’t always celebrated but The Birthday Joy Program in Houston is changing that one child at a time.
“Sometimes parents are out of work, they’ve had a medical issue where they’re not able to work and they’re not able to provide a birthday party for their children and so that’s what the birthday joy program does,” said Nonie Fairchild, director of the nonprofit organization.
The Birthday Joy Program is a nonprofit organization that throws birthday parties for children in shelters, group homes or in need of financial support. This week the party is for Ethan, a little boy turning seven. His mother and four siblings recently lost their home and are struggling so the program is throwing a Batman-themed party for him.
