Ready for School Program

Getting Local Kids Ready to Learn From Head to Toe.

The first day of school is right around the corner, and we want to make sure that every child will start the school year off on the right foot.

Cradles to Crayons' Ready for School campaign helps lay the foundation for school success by providing students across the five-county Philadelphia region with the basic back-to-school tools that they need to succeed in class and fit in with their peers, from clothing to shoes to a new backpack filled with crayons, pencils, notebooks, and other age-appropriate school supplies.

Join us in helping children get ready to learn from head to toe.
