About The Cause

Cradles to Crayons, a non-profit organization that provides resources such as school supplies and clothing to homeless and low-income children is looking for high-quality new and like-new items you are able to donate — for children newborn to age 12 — to help stock The Giving Factory.

A seasonally appropriate coat. A pair of shoes. School supplies and books. Developmental toys. These are just some of the items a child living in poverty desperately needs. We’re looking for high-quality new and like-new items you are able donate — for children newborn through age 12.

The weeks of November 25th to December 18, we will have collection boxes for children's winter clothing at several locations across the city:


Preferrably looking for new or gently used items. If you are unable to drop off food items to one of our locations, CRER Cares will accept tax-deductible donations and go shopping for you.
