Give back this season by purchasing and donating an Outfit Pack. Each Outfit Pack provides a child in-need with a week's worth of clothing.
Life Street, which runs along our loading docks, is currently under construction and will not be open for thru traffic. You will, however, be able to access our loading dock and PACKRAT unit to donate items or to pick up packages. The traffic detail police officers have been informed that our donors and nonprofit partners are permitted to enter the area, just let him/her know your intent. During this time, our parking lot on Guest Street will continue to be available for your convenience. Please access Guest Street via Market Street or connecting from North Beacon Street via Arthur Street (near Wolfers Lighting).
Our vision is that one day every child will have the essentials they need to feel safe, warm, ready to learn and valued.
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.
