The Scoop: Cradles to Crayons
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.
Cradles to Crayons collects new and nearly new children’s items through grassroots community drives and corporate donations. Donations are then processed and packaged by volunteers, and are distributed to disadvantaged children across the state through a collaborative network of social service agencies and school partners. Maria Pelaggi, one of our Business Development associates, has been volunteering the past two years with Cradles to Crayons. She loves the opportunity and hopes to get more Tocci staff involved with helping out. Let’s do it!
