Shade Tree is the largest shelter of its kind in the state of Nevada, and is the only 24-hour accessible shelter designed specifically to meet the needs of women and children in Southern Nevada. On average, 33% of the clients are children under the age of 18.
The Birthday Bunch is part of Girl Nation’s community outreach program and we plan to sponsor the birthday parties throughout the year. The last weekend of every month, The Shade Tree recognizes the children currently at the shelter, who have a birthday that particular month, by including them in the Birthday Bunch and by throwing a big party. The girls help decorate the room, bring gifts for the kids, and set up different games to make it a fabulous birthday party.
