2017 Featured Charity
Cradles to Crayons provides children living in homeless or low income situations with the basic essential items they need to thrive- at home, at school and at play. As poverty continues to grow in our region, Philadelphia has become the poorest large city in our country, leading the nation in deep poverty. Cradles to Crayons mitigates the effects of poverty on local children and families by providing basic items such as clothing, shoes, books and school supplies free of charge. Cradles to Crayons connects communities that have with communities that need through tangible volunteer opportunities and last year supported 24,000 volunteers and served over 75,000 children in the Philadelphia region.
