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.
Our Advisory Board—whose members range from leaders of our social service partners to retailers to bankers to management consultants—donate their time and expertise to Cradles to Crayons in Philadelphia. We are grateful for their many contributions to our organization.
