Please check out our Fiscal Year 2018 Annual Highlights Report, to see what strides we made last year, thanks to your continued support.
For families in need, providing warm, safe outfits for their children during the cold winter months can put a strain on paying for other expenses: heat, hot water, and food, for example. Through our annual Give Back with an Outfit Pack initiative, Cradles to Crayons strives to alleviate the stresses many families face. The Give Back with an Outfit Pack program lets you and your family, friends, and colleagues have a direct and immediate impact on local children by shopping for desperately needed winter layers in our most needed sizes. Each complete Outfit Pack donated will dress one child for one entire week.
