Our Mission and Model

Our Mission: 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.

 

The Model That Brings Our Mission to Life

  • New and nearly new children’s items recollected through grassroots community drives and corporate donations.
  • Donations are then processed and packaged by volunteers in our warehouse, The Giving Factory®.
  • Packages from The Giving Factory are distributed to local disadvantaged children — through our collaborative network of diverse service partners.
