Providing children with the basic essentials they need to be safe, ready to learn, and feel valued.
Our mission is to provide, free of charge, low-income and homeless children from birth to pre-teen the basic essentials they need to be safe, warm, ready to learn, and valued. We also set a foundation for lasting change through the meaningful, tangible volunteer opportunities we provide to thousands of youth and adults each year. Spend a shift on your own or with a group at The Giving Factory sorting, inspecting and cleaning donations of books, toys and clothing or filling orders for kids in need. Also consider organizing a product drive in your community to collect essential items like clothes or school supplies. If you would like to take on a leadership role and deepen your relationship with Cradles to Crayons please inquire about our Teen Leadership Council. There is also ample opportunity to assist in our business office, entering data and tracking donations.
