Cradles to Crayons and ScrubaDub Team Up to Provide Shoes for Children Across Massachusetts

April 29, 2021, BOSTON, MA—Boston-based Cradles to Crayons® has teamed up again with ScrubaDub Auto Wash Centers on Clean For Kicks, a spring cleaning charity program aiming to provide proper footwear to local kids living in homeless or low-income situations.  Children outgrow shoes quickly and this partnership supports Cradles annual Spring Greening initiative which makes it easy to give gently used or new kids clothing essentials a second life by providing them to children who truly need them. 

This spring, whether you are cleaning your family’s closets or your car, you can help provide shoes to low-income children in Massachusetts at any of ScrubaDub’s 19 convenient New England carwash locations. From April 29 – May 14, visit any ScrubaDub to donate either $5 to Cradles to Crayons or a pair of kid’s shoes (new or gently used sizes 1-9 or child/infant sizes 0-13) and receive a complimentary UltraShine Hot Wax on your vehicle ($10 value). UltraShine is ScrubaDub’s best exclusive shine and wax protection available in any carwash tunnel. If you can’t visit a ScrubaDub store, donate online here (http://bit.ly/cleanforkicks) and receive a FREE car wash for every $10 donation. Cradles to Crayons is committed to being a steady and dependable resource for families and children in need.

“Poverty is an ongoing crisis and the COVID-19 pandemic has created new challenges for many families to provide growing children with appropriate shoes and clothing for each season. ScrubaDub is thrilled to partner with Cradles to Crayons again to make a difference in the lives of local kids,” said Mathew Paisner, ScrubaDub Director of Business Development. “As a third-generation family business, we have been giving back to the communities we serve for over 50 years and we are honored to work with Cradles to Crayons.”

We are so grateful ScrubaDub continues to involve us in their philanthropic efforts and appreciate their commitment to supporting local families, particularly at this time,” said Aubrey Conquergood, Executive Director at Cradles to Crayons Boston. “We are constantly working to assist families in Massachusetts recovering from the current health crisis, and the efforts by ScrubaDub will go a long way in helping children in need this spring.
