Million Children Fund

In 2022, Cradles to Crayons Philadelphia passed a significant mission milestone of having served more than ONE MILLION CHILDREN across the region.

But with Philadelphia still ranked as the poorest big city in America, and daily requests for our services increasing, we know there is more work to be done.

The Million Children Fund will support and expand Cradles to Crayons’ day-to-day operations to acquire, process, and distribute essential items to local children living in poverty, low-income, or homeless situations. 

Please make a gift today to help us reach the next million kids.
