Cradles to Crayons and ScrubaDub Team Up to Provide School and Safety Supplies to Students Across Massachusetts

August 14, 2020, BOSTON, MA—Boston-based Cradles to Crayons® has teamed up with ScrubaDub Auto Wash Centers this summer in preparation for the approaching school year. Cradles to Crayons Ready for Learning initiative is underway and aims to provide 50,000 children across Massachusetts with the school supplies necessary to succeed, whether learning returns to the classroom or takes place virtually. Support from ScrubaDub will allow Cradles to Crayons to help alleviate the effects of the recent health crisis on local children and families. 

Visit any of ScrubaDub’s 17 New England tunnel locations from August 17 – August 23 to help local kids receive the school supplies and safety gear they need in the upcoming school year. Donate $5 to receive a complimentary Simoniz UltraShine Hot Wax ($10 value) as each $5 donation will enable Cradles to Crayons to provide a mask and school supplies to a child in need.

“The upcoming school year feels more important than ever to provide local kids with essential learning supplies they need to succeed during COVID-19,” said Mathew Paisner, ScrubaDub Director of Business Development. “As a third-generation family business, helping our communities is part of our core values and it’s an honor to partner with Cradles to Crayons again.” In addition to school supplies, ScrubaDub will donate over 2,000 kids’ masks to Cradles to Crayons thanks to a generous partnership with local mask supplier, Rafi Nova.  

We are so grateful for the continued support from the ScrubaDub team,” said Aubrey Conquergood, Executive Director of Cradles to Crayons Boston. “For families and children hit hardest by the COVID-19 pandemic, it is critical we work to remove as many barriers as possible to learning. We’re aiming to set young students up for success in the classroom and beyond, and ScrubaDub’s efforts are helping us to do so.”
