BIG Give 2021

The BIG Give: Our most critical collection of the year

Autumn weather in our region can transition quickly from summer sun to winter frost. Every year at this time, we see a surge in KidPack requests for local children in need. 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.

You can help.

The BIG Give: Saturday, Sept 25, 10am – 2pm

PECO® has partnered with Cradles to Crayons to sponsor the BIG Give, a multi-county collection day that benefits low income and homeless children across the Greater Philadelphia region. In our Giving Factory, we’ll process these collected items with our “Quality = Dignity” motto in mind, then hand-select items to create and distribute packages for specific kids.

For you, it’s extra stuff.

For a child in need, it’s essential.
