Nia’s Birthday Box is a non-profit community service program that serves foster children and seniors age 60+ located throughout the Washington Metropolitan Area. The program was inspired by my grandmother, Mary Taylor. As a young child, I would visit my grandmother in a nursing home. I immediately realized many elderly people don’t have much interaction apart from doctors and nurses at these homes.
Upon the death of my grandmother, I wanted to develop a program that would be instrumental in bringing smiles and joy to the less fortunate who live right in my own community.
