THE STORY:

CRADLES TO CRAYONS INC wrote -

Founded in 2002, Cradles to Crayons is an innovative non-profit that 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. The Cradles to Crayons model relies on the generous financial, in-kind, and volunteer support from individuals and families to provide fundamental resources to thousands of the most financially- disadvantaged children living across Massachusetts.

A winter coat for a homeless child not only warms the body, but it fosters hope.  A backpack full of supplies at the beginning of the school year for a child served by Cradles to Crayons means they are excited and eager to learn instead of nervous and self-conscious.  Clothing for a week for two children means a mother can make purchasing food for her family a priority, without guilt or regret. By using the power of community connections to fill a niche in the non-profit sector, Cradles to Crayons has impacted the lives of more than 290,000 children living in low-income or homeless situations across Massachusetts.
