Celebrating Your Special Day?
CEFCU is partnering with Children's Hospital of Illinois to help kids throw a party with purpose. Instead of keeping the presents they've received, the birthday boy or girl donates them to young patients at our hospital.
This act of kindness lifts the spirits of children who are being cared for at our facility. For some, the stay is long. A surprise gift like a coloring book, Barbie doll, action figure, or stuffed animal is a simple way to show others compassion and care.
Or, instead of getting presents, children can opt for monetary donations. While the birthday party might be over, the celebration continues when they donate their birthday dollars to help Children's Hospital patients.
Unwrap a birthday bash kit, and celebrate giving today!
These FREE kits have everything needed to host a special party. They're available at any Peoria CEFCU Member Center or the Children's Hospital of Illinois Foundation Office at 4541 N. Prospect Road (4th Floor) in Peoria Heights. Call 309.566.5666 for more information.
What's in the Kit?
- 20 birthday party invitations/envelopes
- 20 donation envelopes
- 20 thank you postcards
- Birthday bash information sheet & letter
- Patient wish list
- 50 thank you stickers
How Can My Birthday Bash Be Successful?
1.) Send invitations to your family and friends, letting them know about the birthday bash!
2.) On the big day, be sure to give each party-goer a sticker thanking them for their gift! (The stickers are found in your birthday bash kit). If someone wants to write a check, they can do so by making it out to Children's Hospital of Illinois.
3.) We’d love to include photos of your party on our website! Send pictures to firstname.lastname@example.org.
4.) After blowing out the candles on the cake, give us a call at 309.566.5666 to arrange a time to deliver your birthday bash money or presents to our office. Those gifts will be used to put smiles on the faces of many sick children!!!
