MLK Day of Service 2021

“Everyone Can Be Great Because Everyone Can Serve.”
-Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.

Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. left a legacy of service that is a meaningful part of our mission at Cradles to Crayons. This MLK Day of Service, join people of different skill sets and backgrounds in making a difference in the community (socially distant, of course) on Monday, January 18, 2021, in one of three ways: 

  1. Shop our Amazon Wish List for our most-needed items!
  2. Be of service in the community by participating in a virtual volunteer activity or volunteer safely in-person. Sign-up here!
  3.  Donate new or gently-used items at one of our six drop-off locations from 10-1 p.m
    • Winter coats (sizes newborn to adult medium)
    • Winter boots (sizes 5 infant/toddler to adult 10)
    • Winter accessories (infant through young adult)
    • New diapers
