Cradles to Crayons

Help Cradles to Crayons make care packages for children in need!

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.  We supply these items free of charge by engaging and connecting communities that have with communities that need.  

At the C2C Giving Factory, volunteers organize donations ranging from clothes to books to toys into packages that are then sent to impoverished children of the Philadelphia area. A fan favorite is making outfit packs, which involves choosing from a variety of donated clothes to make a package of about five outfits. The Giving Factory is open to all of those that are willing to give a helping hand!!   

Another way you can help is by donating needed items or hosting a product drive.  C2C accepts new and gently used items, including clothing, shoes, books, baby items, toys, and school supplies for children from birth to age 12.  Collect items in your school, community, faith-based organization, or business.  Visit our website to learn about the many innovative ways you can collect children’s everyday essential items.
