Cradles to Crayons

Cradles to Crayons was created in 2002 with the purpose of giving children ages 0 to 12 the necessities of life for free. These essentials include clothing, school supplies, toys, and so much more. They strive to provide children with high quality new/used goods that they need to be safe, ready to learn and feel valued.

Another campaign is their Gear Up for Winter initiative where they collect cold winter gear like coats, boots, pants, hats and gloves to the less fortunate Massachusetts families.

Get others involved! We held a donation drive at our Hingham office and we encourage your family and friends to do the same. Donate to help the less privileged kids of the Boston and Philadelphia area!
