ACCED-I’s Act of Caring Recipient Beverly’s Birthdays is rolling in style and reaching more children with the mobile birthday boutique
Beverly’s Birthdays is beginning to focus on the children they serve that struggle with all the humbling consequences of poverty; one of those being ill-fitting clothing. To address this issue, Beverly’s Birthdays is unveiling the Birthday Boutique, a mobile fashion truck outfitted with new clothing, jewelry and accessories.
The Birthday Boutique will now accompany Beverly’s Birthdays to the group birthday celebrations they host at local homeless shelters, residential treatment facilities, family support centers, and group homes. Youth and families will have the opportunity to enter the vehicle to “shop” for a new outfit and any other clothing or accessories needed – all for free.
“Unfortunately, it’s not uncommon for the kids we serve to not only have ill-fitting clothing, but also not enough clothing.” said Megs Yunn, Founder and Executive Director. “Having new clothes is something so simple that can make a child feel so special. We’re ecstatic the truck is ready and that we can now truly deliver hope on a hanger.”
The Birthday Boutique has already started its venture across Pittsburgh, stopping at family centers, homeless shelters, and schools along the way. It is fully stocked with new clothing and accessories generously donated by Delivering Good and their partner Kidbox and American Eagle.
