Cradles to Crayons – a hands-on volunteer day!

Thank you to everyone who came to volunteer and helped serve over 200 Chicago area kids on Sunday, September 25th at Cradles to Crayons!  Cradles to Crayons® provides children from birth through age 12, living in homeless or low-income situations, with the essential items they need to thrive — at home, at school and at play. They supply these items free of charge by engaging and connecting communities that have with communities that need. Volunteers will fill shopping carts at the Giving Factory with clothes, shoes, books and other requested items to create “Kidpacks” for children in need.

Looking to clean out your kid’s closets? Cradles to Crayons is in need of clothing, books and toys! For donation guidelines and convenient drop-off locations click here.
We hope to return this winter/spring so be on the lookout for future dates.
