Pittsburgh Pirates-CARE-avan

Beverly’s Birthdays got an extra special guest last week, the PITTSBURGH PIRATES!  The Pittsburgh Pirates graced us with their presence and  PRESENTS!!


Beverly’s was lucky enough to be part of the Pittsburgh Pirates 2013 CARE-a-van which began on December 11th.  The Pirates toured over 15 cities where they participated in community events with area non-profits and schools throughout western Pennsylvania, Ohio and West Virginia.  Beverly’s Birthdays feels incredibly lucky to have had these Pittsburgh sports stars in our office! It was hard to contain our

excitement when the Pirates  bus pulled up and out walked Tony Sanchez, Tony Watson, Josh Harrison, and first base coach Rick Sofield.  The guys didn’t come empty handed and brought cheer bins with them!Gettingoffbus

We can’t thank these outstanding role models enough for donating their time and gifts! Some very lucky birthday boys and girls will receive these extra special cheer bins on their birthday  A HUGE THANK YOU to the Pittsburgh Pirates Organization for making Beverly’s Birthdays part of this outstanding community outreach project! We can’t wait to CHEER on the Pirates this upcoming season. GO BUCS!! 

Beverly’s was fortunate enough to also get these hometown favorites John Hancock’s on a few items that will be part of Beverly’s Birthdays Evening of Cheer Chinese auction!  Tickets can be purchased to win the autographed items from these awesome athletes!

Rudolph the red nose reindeer


We love that our job is spreading birthday cheer but we also love celebrating the holidays and spreading Christmas cheer!  The seasons are a great opportunity to spend time with the ones you love and to make the most of family time.  Christmas music is a genre of its own and is a great way to get the entire family in the mood for Christmas.  Children across America will be singing the popular holiday song, Rudolph the red nose reindeer.  This week for our recipe to spread cheer, we would like to share with you an edible cookie craft that is perfect to make with your kids!

These are fun cookies that require no oven! They can be made with children of all ages ranging from infant to teenager.  The ingredients needed are as follows:Reindeercookies

  • A package of Nutter Butter cookies (if your child has a peanut allergy, any cookies will do)
  • A bag of pretzel twists
  • A bag of M&M’s chocolate candies
  • A bag of M&M’s chocolate candies

Lay cookies out on plates.  The vanilla frosting is going to act as the “glue” for this project.  Have the kids attach one pretzel at the top of the cookie to serve as the antlers.  Then attach two brown M&M’s for the eyes and one red chocolate candy to make Rudolph’s shiny nose (like a light bulb!).  Your Rudolph cookies is complete!

We hope you enjoy this festive craft that will help your
family get in the holiday spirits.  If your family is interested in doing
a service project please consider coming to Beverly’s Birthdays Family Cheer
Day on Saturday, December 21st from 12:00pm-2:30pm at our office in North Huntingdon, PA.  This will allow you and your family the opportunity to put together the cheer bins we distribute to the homeless children of Pittsburgh on their birthdays!  Please register here https://secure.jotform.us/form/33435137965157.

For additional information, please feel free to e-mail Beverly’s at getinvolved@beverlsbirthdays.org.

A HUGE thank you goes out to our Beverly’s bakers who donated their time and talent in the kitchen making cookies for our Baker’s Blitz last week. Our first cookies sale was a success! We couldn’t have done it without great volunteers who contributed all the delicious baked goods!

Stay warm this week in the cold weather by warming your hearts making lasting memories of time spent with loved ones.  Although this time of year may be stressful, we encourage each of you to bring cheer to someone’s day this holiday season.  Spreading cheer doesn’t have to cost money and can be as simple as a smile to a stranger!  A perfect way to spread cheer that only asks you to donate your time is our Family Cheer Day!  We would love for more of you to become part of our Beverly’s family and to make lasting memories with us.
