Items We Accept

Consistent with public health guidelines, Cradles to Crayons suspended product collections in March 2020. Since then we have closely monitored local updates, and created new safety protocols to allow for a phased return to operations. As we enter a new phase of re-opening, Cradles to Crayons is excited to announce that our organization will begin to accept donations again as of Monday, July 6. We have also updated our donation guidelines to reflect the items we can currently accept and distribute at this time. Please understand that for the safety of our community, we are only collecting donations in our new outdoor units in our parking lot. Place your items in the open unit, as far back as possible. Units will be locked as each fills, so that we can quarantine donations for 72 hours. Thank you.
