Benetrends Volunteer Day at Cradles to Crayons

Every year, thousands of volunteers pass through the doors of the Cradles to Crayons Giving Factory warehouse to roll up their sleeves and help disadvantaged children around the Greater Philadelphia region. Together we sort, and package all new and like-new donations into customized “KidPacks”.


 By cleaning out your closets – reusing, repurposing and recycling those items your child no longer needs – you can help equip low-income children with vitally needed everyday essentials.

Cradles to Crayons was founded in 2002, with the mission of providing to children ages 0 to 12 some of the most important basics of life—free of charge.

089KidPacks - each containing a week’s worth of everyday essentials are distributed by more than 250 social service agencies to low-income and homeless children living in the Philadelphia region.These basics include clothing, school supplies, toys, and much more. In other words, we provide all the physical goods that children need to be safe, protected from the elements, and ready to learn. And by supplying them with high-quality used or new goods, we make children feel valued.

Cradles to Crayons is always looking for new and exciting ideas to partner with companies in ways that help local children.

Have an idea for your company to support Cradles to Crayons in a different way? Please contact Susan Hight or (215) 836-0958, ext. 208, to discuss other creative engagement options.
