Who are we?

We are the Student Peer Advocate (SPA) program through the Independent Health Foundation! This four-year program is designed for local high school students to build upon their skills and become respected, resilient leaders among their peers and make a positive impact on health and wellness in their student body and community. Each year, our advocates will become more involved with the participation, planning and implementation of various community initiatives.

What are we doing?

We are requesting community donations to provide “Birthday Boxes” to families with young children to ensure their special day is celebrated, and to offset the cost and stress on parents who have been impacted by the pandemic.

What is a birthday box?

Our Birthday Boxes are fun-filled packages complete with items such as cake mix, frosting, candles, decorations, small gifts and other fun supplies usually associated with a birthday party!

Why are we doing it?

We are happy to be supporting Buffalo Prenatal-Perinatal Network, Inc., a non-profit organization that has supported local families to meet the challenges of parenting and build a better future for their children.
