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. Throughout the year we provide new and gently used clothing, shoes, and books for kids who are quickly growing. When kids go back to school, we supply backpacks filled with school supplies so they can be prepared and ready to learn. When the cold winter months come, we distribute winter coats, hats, and gloves to keep kids safe and warm. During the pandemic, we have provided more diapers and hygiene items than ever. In the past year, we worked with 101 organizations across Massachusetts and served 311,000 kids. Will you join us this year to help ensure local children receive the essential items they need to thrive?
