As you begin to declutter, do so with purpose: Think about the items your family can no longer use -- clothes your kids have outgrown, books they've read and reread -- and consider donating to Cradles to Crayons.
Join in our Spring Greening effort and clean out your closets with the purpose of recycling those items to help area children in need.
Most Needed Items are immediate needs of children's essential items in our warehouse. The most prevalent out-of-stock items are new underwear & socks, pants, winter coats, and books.
Cradles to Crayons serves as a resource for communities in-need and a hub of civic engagement in Philadelphia.
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.
