NBC Bundle Up New England

Let's #BundleUp New England!

We’ve partnered with NBC10 Boston, NECN, Telemundo Boston, and NBC Sports to get warm winter coats to kids this winter!

Kids Need Coats

NBC and Cradles to Crayons are teaming up to make sure every child has a coat to stay warm this winter.

In our current COVID-19 environment, an alarming and growing number of families will struggle to secure this basic essential for their children this winter. Through March 2022, NBC’s Bundle Up New England program is helping us collect coats to support this need! Purchase a new winter coat, or bring a gently-used one, to one of the participating drop-off locations listed below.

Drop Off Locations

*Please drop your donations in the designated mailbox unit outside of our Giving Factory.


“I am grateful for my new jacket because I like the design on it. I am also grateful for my jacket because it’s thick and it has Velcro to cover my face when it is very windy outside. My new jacket is light blue with pink. Thank you so so so much for the awesome jacket. Some kids don’t have jackets so that’s why it’s important to give us jackets for winter so we won’t freeze and have to go to the hospital. The winter here is so bad that’s why I am so thankful for the warm jacket so we won’t freeze like an ice cube. Love, Sheila”

“Children grow quickly and the ability to order seasonal [clothing] sets our families up for success. […] A particularly rewarding and heartwarming moment was when a child named C.J. walked [into our office] (before COVID) proudly wearing her new winter coat. She gave a big smile and sweetly thanked the staff member for the new jacket, saying “Isn’t it so beautiful? I feel warm and pretty!” – Service Partner at Jeremiah Program Boston
