Lincoln woman hosts monthly birthday parties for kids

Aug 7, 2017

LINCOLN, Neb. (AP) — A woman has been hosting monthly birthday parties for anywhere between 10 to 60 kids at a local community center in Lincoln.

The Lincoln Journal Star reports that Susan Brown hosts the monthly parties at F Street Community Center, where she serves meals to kids in need every weekend.

Children who celebrated a birthday that month can walk to the birthday closet, where they pick a toy of their choice.

Brown was inspired after her daughter said how sad she was watching children spend all day at the center without food. Brown started a Facebook group named "We Can Do This," who meets at the center on the first Saturday of every month. They buy food and gifts for the birthday closet, as well as prepare and hand out meals.
