City Gospel Mission is a faith-based organization that provides food, shelter, recovery programs, job placement, and other services to those in-need. It also offers a variety of youth programs including tutoring, ballet, and summer camp. City Gospel Mission's Whiz Kids program is for kindergarten through 8th grade students from Hamilton County schools and adjacent counties. The program's goal is to improve literacy and support academic success for at-risk kids, plus making sure these students know they are not forgotten and are important. Due to COVID-19, about 75% of the Whiz Kids' sites were not opened. To stay in-contact with these students and to hopefully help them from "falling through the cracks," the staff initiated a variety of ways to have contact with the students - the birthday packages are one of these initiatives. The birthday packages include a book, bookmark, craft, card, calendar, balloon, and cookie/snack. Volunteers will assemble and decorate/wrap the packages, plus write notes in the birthday cards.
