CBRE|HUBBELL COMMERCIAL’S BIRTHDAY CAKES FOR HOMELESS CHILDREN

West Des Moines, IA (March 17, 2014) – CBRE|Hubbell Commercial reached a milestone in the firm’s Birthday Cakes for Homeless Children program with the delivery of its 500th birthday cake. Associates delivered this special cake to a young boy residing in a Children and Families of Iowa shelter.

CBRE|Hubbell Commercial began its Birthday Cakes for Homeless Children program in April 2009, delivering its first birthday cake to a one year old boy residing in the same Children and Families of Iowa shelter. CBRE|Hubbell Commercial associates fund the program, coordinate scheduling with the shelters, and order and deliver the birthday cakes. The program is also made possible through a strong partnership with the bakery at West Lakes Hy-Vee in West Des Moines, which bakes and decorates all the birthday cakes.

Birthday Cakes for Homeless Children has expanded over the years and now provides cakes to children and teens in six shelters throughout the Des Moines area, working closely with Children and Families of Iowa as well as Iowa Homeless Youth Centers. The number of cakes delivered to each shelter continues to increase in order to meet a growing need in the community.

“We hope this small recognition and a beautifully decorated cake that always says ‘Happy Birthday’ with the child’s name on it provides a special moment and nice memory during a challenging time in the child’s life,” stated organizer of the program, Colleen Johnson, Vice President, CBRE|Hubbell Commercial.
