In 2002 Cradles to Crayons launched its first location in Boston, collecting new and gently used clothing, toys and books for children in need. Its second location in the Philadelphia area (Conshohocken) launched in 2006.
Through donated items they are able to assemble “Kid Packs” for children living in homeless or low-income situations with the essential items they need to thrive – at home, at school and at play. We supply these items free of charge by engaging and connecting communities that have with communities that need.
Still, it costs Cradles to Crayons $33.00 to put a Kid Pack (for a child age birth to 12 years) together and get it to where it is needed through their partnership with area social services.
To celebrate 10 years of service to children in deep poverty Cradles to Crayons is inviting folks to support their 10th Anniversary Campaign. A number of our congregants are able to donate their time on a Wednesday morning. A donation to the campaign is another way to support this wonderful mission to children!
Donation forms are available on the Outreach table in the Wesley Room.
