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.

Gear up For Winter

Winter brings below-freezing temperatures and puts children without adequate protection at risk for cold weather illness and injury. For thousands of local children, staying warm is a struggle,  both indoors and outside. Cradles to Crayons®’ Gear Up for Winter program distributes warm winter essentials to families who need them most before harsh weather conditions become an emergency.
