Cradles to Crayons Collection: Cradles to Crayons, the local nonprofit that combats the effects of poverty faced by children in the Greater Philadelphia area, will conduct a region-wide drive on Monday, January 20, to collect essential everyday items for disadvantaged children, ages 0-12, in support of the annual Greater Philadelphia Martin Luther King, Jr. Day of Service. 

Cradles to Crayons encourages the general public to donate new and gently used infants’ and children’s clothing, warm coats, hats, gloves, shoes, boots, newborn baby items, baby safety equipment, toys, books and school supplies. Collection sites, manned by Cradles to Crayons’ volunteers, will be in place on Monday, January 20, at a number of firehouses, schools, and other locations across the Greater Philadelphia region.

“We will have numerous collection points throughout the Greater Philadelphia region,” said Cradles to Crayons outreach manager, Jeff Baxter. “We encourage any organization that wants to be included in this important initiative to join us and serve as a drop-off site for the day. The more collection points we have, the more items we will be able to supply to children living in low-income and/or homeless situations.”

In addition, Cradles to Crayons will host an on-site donation processing event at its warehouse, where volunteers will sort, inspect, clean and prepare the donated items for inclusion in KidPacks – a week’s supply of everyday essentials “ordered” by area social service agencies for individual children in their care – which will be picked up from the warehouse and delivered to the children at no cost. 

Organizations interested in serving as a donation drop-off site can contact Jeff at jeff@cradlestocrayons.org or 215-836-0958, ext. 210.
