Little Birthday Angels is a Treasure Coast non-profit that strives to celebrate the birthdays of every child that is registered as homeless throughout the region. They are able to collaborate with each school district and the homelessness liaison onsite to get the information as to whether these kids and their families are in shelters or living in cars, tents, or even couch surfing. By collecting that data along eith their birthdays, age, clothing and shoe size, and wish list the team of volunteers go to task to procure the items and distribute them.
The distribution is an incredible feat and is two-fold. For those kids staying in shelters, a birthday party is hosted each month complete with decorations, cake, games, presents, pictures, and more. The other children are given gifts by way of a large black duffel bag at school. Inside is chock full of toiletries, clothes, shoes, toy, lap desk, and more. The cost of each bag is roughly $220 and the demand is sadly quite high with nearly 1,000 students in need.
For the past four years, the realtors of the area along with trusted affiliates have banned together for a night of spirited fun to raise awareness and dollars for the cause. Not only does White Glove Moving form a team to play since year one, our Director of Marketing, Anna Valencia Tillery serves as the emcee while also being a sponsor of the event.
White Glove Moving & Storage proudly took home 2nd place with Caleb Clements, Terry Wright, Rick Copher, and Mike Carter at the helm scoring over 700 points. First place went to Keller Williams of Vero Beach and third place to the Coldwell Banker Paradise team led by Vance Brinkerhoff. Remax Crown won for team spirit which included elaborate costumes and a Evil Knievel on a bike shooting out of a ring of faux fire; what a night and all for a great cause!
