The Curate Cares Team came together at the Cradles to Crayons Giving Factory, an organization that aims to provide essential items to homeless or low-income children for their homes, schools, and playtime. Cradles to Crayons accepts a range of donations that are new and like-new items for children aged newborn to 12 years old. The Giving Factory is the warehouse where volunteers hand-select items for specific children and distribute the packages.
Volunteering at the Giving Factory Warehouse involves hands-on processing of the children’s items that are donated to Cradles to Crayons. Within the warehouse, there are several stations that include inspecting, sorting, and packaging donations so that they are ready for distribution to children.
This year our team of volunteers was assigned to the “outfits” area where we assembled outfits for boys and girls aged newborn to 12 years old and inspected the quality of the clothes one final time before heading off to the families! It was a rewarding experience for all of us to contribute to such an important cause!
There are so many different ways to get involved with Cradles to Crayons. Volunteer for a shift in the Giving Factory, donate funds, or donate goods to make an impact today on a child living in poverty.
