Give Back With An Outfit Pack
The Need: Winter is incredibly challenging for many families we serve and 92% of the requests Cradles to Crayons will receive include an order for an Outfit Pack - a week's worth of matched outfits, new socks, underwear, and pajamas.
For example, Anya is 6 years old and recently arrived at a shelter with her mother because her home was not safe. Because they had to leave in a hurry, Anya arrived with only the clothes on her back. The shelter provided her with a change of clothes but not enough to last a week. Anya was embarrassed when she had to wear the same shirt to kindergarten all week. Cradles to Crayons was able to provide Anya with a comprehensive package that included a week's worth of clothing which raised her self-esteem.
