Host a Drive

Here at Cradles to Crayons, we are continuing to witness a rise in demand for our critical services.  You can help us serve more families in need this year by collecting essential children's items and spreading the word about our need.

Hosting a drive is as easy as cleaning out your closet, and asking your friends, family members, neighbors, classmates, or coworkers to do the same. Follow the four steps listed above to have a successful drive in your community!
