Empowering Children. Strengthening Families. Building Community.
The Family Leadership Circle is Cradles to Crayons' group of generous and dedicated families who play a critical role in sustaining our mission to provide local children with the essential items they need to thrive.
Members of the Family Leadership Circle give $1,000 or more annually and receive special acknowledgement as well as opportunities to come together to foster empathy, community responsibility, and good citizenship in their children through the shared experience of volunteering and giving to children and families in need.
Why join the Family Leadership Circle?
"I think that families should join the FLC because it’s a great way for busy parents and kids to come together to learn about and to actually help families in need.
As a mother, I know what the needs of a growing family are, how hard it can be to meet those needs, and how quickly they change. I like volunteering at C2C because they directly serve individual children and have a high-impact, tangible effect on children. If we can teach our kids at an early age that it is important and satisfying to give to others, they will carry that lesson with them into adulthood. The FLC is a fun way to teach kids about the benefits of philanthropy." Katie Norton, FLC Ambassador

By instilling the value of giving back at an early age, parents are helping to create a new generation of leaders that will rise to the challenges facing their own communities. As we put together an online resource for families interested in finding new ways to teach their children about the importance of service, we invite you to submit your own Family Recipe for Giving by visiting www.cradlestocrayons.org/boston/family-recipes-for-giving.
