Giving Factory at Home

How to Volunteer at Home

The COVID-19 crisis continues to exacerbate the need for essential items for families in homeless and low-income situations. Cradles to Crayons typically welcomes volunteers to The Giving Factory to work toward meeting these critical needs for the families we serve. However, as we are unable to gather in large groups, we have created new activities to bring The Giving Factory experience home to you!

Below you will find two sets of activities that Cradles to Crayons has created for you and your family to continue to help us provide essential items to local kids from the safety of your home. Our Giving Factory At Home options replicate volunteer stations we would normally facilitate in the warehouse and are most in need. If you would like to participate, please sign up and we will assign you a Giving Factory At Home activity (each Giving Factory At Home activity requires picking up donations from the Giving Factory in Newtonville before getting started). We also have Service Learning Activities which can be completed at any time. 

More than ever, we look to our community to help execute our mission. Don’t forget to help spread the word by posting your efforts on social media with #c2cboston!
