Donate Your Birthday

Turn birthday wishes into miracles for Ruth’s House! Here are some ideas:

Collect Donations

Tell family and friends how much it would mean to you if they would contribute to Ruth’s House in honor of your birthday.

  • Invite them to donate directly online.
  • Have a basket to collect checks made out to Ruth’s House of Hope, Inc., at your birthday event and then send those to us.
  • Ask guests to bring items from our current Needs List to your birthday event; then deliver the donated supplies to Ruth’s House.
