Organization's Mission and Model: Cradles to Crayons provides children from birth through age 12, living in homeless or low-income situations, with the essential items they need to thrive - at home, at school and at play. We supply these items free of charge by engaging and connecting communities that have with communities that need.
Cradles to Crayons collects new and like-new children's items through grassroots community drives and corporate donations. Donations are then processed and packaged by volunteers, and are distributed to disadvantaged children across the state through a collaborative network of social service agencies and school partners.
Volunteer Position Overview
The Champion Program at C2C is a way for adults to give back and volunteer their time atleast once a week or once every other week. Champions come in durring one of our scheduled shift times to help lead a processing station in our warehouse. A shift is two and a half hours long. The goal of these stations is to help process donated items so we can get essential items out to children in need. For example if you were to become an Outfit Station Champion you would be responcibile to assiging untrained volunteers specific outfit packs sizes we need, for example girls 2T and 4/5T. You would then go over a quick orientation that explains to the people in your station what to do and what our quality standards are. Then as people are making outfit packs you will be supervising the people, ansering questions, keeping them supplied with clothes, and keeping track of inventory.
As a Champion Volunteer Leader you will:
-Receive a complete Giving Factory station training
-Lead or co-lead volunteer groups of 10-25 people
