Bruins PJ Drive
Sign-ups are open for the 17th Annual Bruins PJ Drive! From February 1 through March 15, Cradles to Crayons, the Boston Bruins, Massachusetts Board of Library Commissioners, and Wonderfund are coming together with groups in your community to collect brand new pajamas for local children living in low-income and homeless situations. Host a PJ Drive to help us reach our overall goal of collecting 10,000 pairs of brand-new pajamas. The top three collecting groups will win prizes to be set by the Boston Bruins!
NBC Bundle Up New England
NBC and Cradles to Crayons are teaming up for the fourth year in a row to make sure every child has a coat to stay warm. Now through February, our Bundle Up New England program encourages you to collect and donate winter coats to help meet children’s needs across Massachusetts. Participate by hosting a winter coat drive in your community, dropping off new or gently-used winter coats at a drop-off location near you, or shopping our custom Amazon Wish List.
We work with families, individuals, community groups, and companies to serve over 145,000 children every year in Massachusetts. We depend on volunteers to make this important work possible.
Learn from our service partners, volunteers, and families about the difference we make in the daily lives of the children we serve.
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.
In the News
We host special events and activities throughout the year in our Giving Factory and in local communities to enable community groups, families, and businesses to support our mission and help neighbors in need.
