NBC 5 “Bundle Up” Coat Drive
Cradles to Crayons’ partnership with NBC 5 “Bundle Up” Coat Drive kicks off Monday, November 15, 2021 – January 6, 2022. There are 60 drop-off locations all over the city and suburbs listed where you can donate your gently used or brand-new coat!
We work with over 7,000 families, individuals, community groups and companies to serve over 30,000 children every year in Chicago. Your time is vital to getting children the everyday essentials they need.
On a human level, what we do is bring a little sunshine into the life of a family or child in need. Learn firsthand about the difference we make on a day-to-day basis. From our service partners and volunteers and from the families themselves.
The Difference We're Making
Our whole focus is to make our collaborative process as easy and streamlined as possible. This helps us to empower the children you serve at home, at school and at play by providing the everyday essentials that match their individual needs.
We empower media outlets to help tell the story of our work through the Cradles to Crayons lens and voice. Click the link below for more information.
