Cradles to Crayons serves as a resource for communities in-need and a hub of civic engagement in Greater 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.
