What if $9 could give a child a new winter coat?

Our neighbors are enduring prolonged hardships. Between a reduction or complete loss of unemployment benefits, the end of the eviction moratorium, and the rising cost of consumer goods, low-income families are still struggling to rebound in the ongoing pandemic. 

Though the need can seem overwhelming, we can help families access the items they deserve together. As Cradles to Crayons works to provide 54,000 children with coats, hats, gloves, and more, you can make an impact with a gift on this Giving Tuesday. 

Donate now to help keep Chicagoland children safe and warm this winter!
