WINTER COLLECTION DRIVE There are 368,000 (27%) low-income or homeless children in Massachusetts who face a special set of challenges during winter months. Their families are frequently forced to choose between essentials for their children, and groceries, rent and heat. Expensive winter-appropriate outerwear — coats, hats, boots and gloves — are often impossible to afford for their families.
At this time of year Cradles to Crayons focuses on collecting winter clothing items to help prevent children from having to face the crippling cold New England weather without the proper gear. We will be collecting winter coats, boots and other warm, winter items for children (newborn – 12 years old) at the Boston office, training and holiday party, as well as taking monetary donations. Last year we, as a firm, donated close to $3,200 and 28 winter clothing items to the organization which equated to 124 kids we helped to keep warm.
This year let’s make it our goal to help 150 kids!! This is a really great organization and supports a much-needed cause.
