About Cradles to Crayons

Location:

4141 West George Street, Chicago, IL 60641, US

Mission Statement

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.

Description

Started in 2002 in Boston then moving to Philadelphia in 2007, Cradles to Crayons opens our third site right here in the Logan Square neighborhood of Chicago. We are built by the community in which we stay. Gently used donations of the items we distribute (including clothing, shoes, toys, books, etc.) come into our Giving Factory from families, businesses hosting drives, churches, etc. Volunteers then have the opportunity to sort, organize, quality check, and pack up KidPacks which are individually placed requests from our partner organizations in the cities that we serve. We accept volunteers as young as 5 years old and have volunteer shifts most Tuesdays, Thursdays, Fridays and weekends.
