Volunteer with 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 young children in Massachusetts. Together, youth and adults inspect, sort, and package all new and like-new donations into customized “KidPacks”.

Anyone age 5 and above can volunteer at the Giving Factory. Activities are appropriate and engaging for individuals, families, student and community groups and corporate groups. Our warehouse space allows us to accomodate large numbers of volunteers, so it provides an exceptional team-building experience for companies. Sign up for a 2-hour shift on our website. You will work at a volunteer station such as Outfits, Toys, Library, Nursery, and more.
