Families Helping Families
Once you experience the joy of giving back and see the benefits of your philanthropy firsthand, you will want to pass those feelings and values on to your children. When coming together as a family to help Cradles to Crayons, you have several opportunities to make a real and immediate difference in your local community.
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.
