Because every kid deserves a happy birthday!

TAKE THE CAKE  is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization located in Maplewood-South Orange, New Jersey and serving Essex and Union counties. We are committed to the idea that every child deserves a special birthday party.

​Many families in our community - due to economic strain or family crisis - are unable to host momentous birthday parties for their children or celebrate the other important milestones in their lives. 

Our goal is to provide fun, special, customized and free-of-charge parties to families who couldn’t otherwise celebrate their children’s birthdays.
