Help a Child Get Ready for School — From Head to Toe!
For families in need, the pressure of providing a back to school outfit can put a strain on this important part of a child’s educational experience. Cradles to Crayons and Hannah Andersson have teamed up to provide these kids with a high-quality outfit for the first day of school. Our Back to School Outfit initiative lets you, your family, friends, and colleagues go shopping for clothing that will prepare a child in need from head to toe for the new school year. Your donation will help ensure that all children have the clothing essentials they need to kick off the new year feeling confident and ready to learn.
Families Helping Families
Once you experience the joy of giving back and see the benefits of your philanthropy firsthand, you will want to pass those feelings and values on to your children. When coming together as a family to help Cradles to Crayons, you have several opportunities to make a real and immediate difference in your local community.
We work with over 40,000 families, individuals, community groups and companies to serve over 140,000 children every year in Massachusetts. Your time is vital to getting children the everyday essentials they need.
On a human level, what we do is bring a little sunshine into the life of a family or child in need. Learn firsthand about the difference we make on a day-to-day basis. From our service partners and volunteers and from the families themselves.
The Difference We're Making
Our whole focus is to make our collaborative process as easy and streamlined as possible. This helps us to empower the children you serve at home, at school and at play by providing the everyday essentials that match their individual needs.
