Cradles to Crayons - Children 6+ able to attend!

Come to the Cradles to Crayons Giving Factory to help sort and organize donated toys, clothes, etc. that will be distributed in KidPacks - each containing a week’s worth of everyday essentials.  KidPacks are distributed by more than 250 social service agencies to low-income and homeless children living in the Philadelphia region.

Directions are available on the Cradles to Crayons web site:

http://cradlestocrayons.org/philadelphia/directions

Cradles to Crayons asks that volunteers pre-register at:

http://www.cradlestocrayons.org/node/add/registration/a0RC000000BzgiE

Also, For safety reasons, all children present during a volunteer shift must be at least 6 years old. Volunteers under 18 years old must have a chaperone and a signed waiver form with them when they volunteer.  Please let me know if you would like a waiver form and I will send you one via email.

Please wear closed-toe shoes and clothing that can get dirty. The warehouse can be warmer or cooler based on the weather outside, so we recommend bringing layers that you can remove during your shift.

Lastly,volunteers are STRONGLY ENCOURAGED to bring in new and gently used children's items to donate (clothing, books, toys, school supplies, and baby equipment). Even one pair of shoes or a few articles of clothing make a difference in the life of a child in need- please collect as much as you can!

Right now, certain “hard to get items” are desperately needed, including new socks and underwear (Infant – 14/16) and boys pants sizes 9/10 – 14/16. A list of the Top 10 Most-Needed items is available from http://www.cradlestocrayons.org/philadelphia/donate-goods/items-we-accept.





Thanks!

- Steve

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
