Ready for Learning

The kids and families we serve need you. 

Since the launch of Cradles to Crayons’ COVID-19 crisis outreach efforts in March, the number of kids we serve has increased by over 60% and requests for diapers have surged by 900%!

As the effects of COVID-19 and social unrest continue to unfold and overwhelmingly impact the lives of the kids and families who rely on us, Cradles to Crayons will focus on the Ready for Learning initiative. Ready for Learning will provide 50,000 local children with learning supplies that will enable them to show up and be present for their education this fall, no matter where learning takes place.

In order to meet the immediate and future requests for assistance, take this opportunity to double your donation – the Up Foundation is generously matching up to $20,000 for Ready for Learning.
