The BIG Give as Supported by PECO
PECO® has partnered with Cradles to Crayons Philadelphia to sponsor The BIG Give a multi-county collection day (September 21) that benefits low income and homeless children across the Greater Philadelphia region. The BIG Give is our most critical collection of the year. Autumn weather in our region can transition quickly from summer sun to winter frost. As we head into our Gear Up for Winter campaign, we need to re-stock the warehouse with children’s essentials to carry us through the coming months.
Help Keep Kids Warm
Every child deserves to be prepared for harsh winter weather with warm clothing, a heavy coat, hat, gloves and other winter essentials.
We work with over 24,000 families, individuals, community groups and companies to serve over 70,000 children every year in the region. 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.
Cradles to Crayons has a new home!
With a goal of supporting 100,000 children in the Greater Philadelphia region annually, we have found a new warehouse location which is easily accessible from major highways, includes 60 free parking spaces, and will increase our physical space from 16,000 to 25,000 square feet so that we can host more volunteers and help more children than ever before!
