300,000 children in Greater Philadelphia live in poverty. Let’s help them.

At Cradles to Crayons, our entire organization is driven by a focused and all-important goal: to make life better for children in need. To make this happen, it takes a wide variety of individuals and groups coming together to make a difference in their local communities.
