BRIGHTER BIRTHDAYS: Brighter Birthdays received a donation from Newby-Stahl Advisory Group which will make an immediate impact in their ability to serve, Warden said. Brighter Birthdays is a locally started and run nonprofit organization providing schools with 2,500 backpacks containing birthday party items, gifts, toiletries and school supplies. The schools then distribute them to students in the community to help children celebrate their birthday.
