Cradles to Crayons launched in Boston in 2002. We provide 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. Cradles to Crayons collects new and high-quality used children’s goods and engages thousands of youth and adults in volunteer activities each year on behalf of local children in need.
