Big Give

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 26, 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.

Items We Accept

Please go through your closets and dressers to identify good-condition clothing, shoes, lightweight jackets, winter coats & snow boots which your children may have outgrown since last year. Some critical items, such as socks, underwear, and pajamas must be new when donated. We are also in need of books (from board books to chapter books), new school supplies, and diapers.
