Cradles to Crayons

Did You Know?

Cradles to Crayons works with 350 partner agencies and in 2013 was projected to give more than 34,000 KidPacks (which contain a week's worth of clothing, books, toys, shoes, and a coat, gloves, hat and boots in the winter), as well as 30,000 backpacks filled with new school supplies.

Their 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. They supply these items free of charge by engaging and connecting communities that have with communities that need.

How Just $25 Can Help

$25 will bring warmth to the life of a child by helping provide the essentials necessary to be safe and warm this winter. Your donation will support the creation of a comprehensive package for a local child that may include books, toys, shoes, a week's worth of clothing, and cold weather essentials like a warm coat, boots, a hat, and gloves.

Get Started

"We use our ableDollars to support Cradles to Crayons because it is an incredible organization that serves children who do not have the basic essentials that they need. They do this in a meaningful, efficient, and loving way. It's as simple as that."
