Martin Luther King Day of Service 2020
Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.
Annual Day of Service
Monday, January 20, 2020
Cradles To Crayons is proud to celebrate Dr. King’s legacy of service in the community by going region-wide for our largest product collection of the year. We will be collecting essential items for children ages 0-12, living in poverty or low-income situations, throughout the five county Greater Philadelphia region.
This critical collection will help stock our shelves to help us fulfill thousands of requests over the coming months. Please donate new or like-new children’s items at one of our donation drop-off sites listed below.

Corporate supporters of MLK Day are able to volunteer at the Cradles to Crayons Giving Factory from 10 am – 12 pm and 1 pm – 3 pm. For more information on how to become a corporate supporter and reserve space for your group please email email@example.com
