For You, They’re Extra Belongings

For a Child in Need, They’re Essentials

Cradles to Crayons accepts a wide range of donations of new and like-new items for children of all ages, from newborn to age 12. In our Giving Factory warehouses, we then hand-select items to create and distribute packages for specific kids. Here are two ways you can help:

      • Go through your closets, attic, basement, and/or garage to find new or like-new children’s items to donate.
      • Host a product collection drive at your home, school, workplace, place of worship, or in your community. Click the appropriate link below to learn more.

Items We Accept

A seasonally appropriate coat. A pair of shoes that fit. School supplies and books. Developmental toys. These are just some of the items a child living in poverty desperately needs. We’re looking for high-quality new and like-new items you are able donate — for children newborn through age 12. Help us stock The Giving Factory warehouse, either through your direct donations or by organizing a collection drive at home or at work.
