This year a new component for the 2013 party season includes bird house design. Architects, interior designers and others are being invited to submit a design for the perfect birdhouse, or safe haven, in a competition devised to spread the mission of the Family Sunshine Center.
The bird houses, painted by MCPS students over a two week period, will be given as gifts to the hosts of the Making Home Safe Havens parties.
