TOCCI Volunteers at Cradles to Crayons
TOCCI volunteers returned to The Giving Factory in Newton, where donations are collected, sorted, and distributed to local disadvantaged children.
The team assembled 105 bags of clothing for children of various ages facing clothing insecurity.
Childhood poverty is a shockingly relevant and pressing need that spoke to TOCCI’s volunteers. According to Cradles to Crayons, more than 277,000 Massachusetts children, 12 years or younger, live in low-income homes or are homeless. The average U.S. family with two adults and two children, live on less than $24,000 a year. The team was extremely motivated to support this initiative and help children acquire essentials like clothing and school supplies.
