HOW IT MAKES A DIFFERENCE

Through Giving Factory at Home, you are helping Cradles to Crayons in two ways. First, you are helping C2C collect much needed clothing essentials to combat the issue of clothing insecurity. Secondly, you are helping move donations along in our Giving Factory by pre-quality checking and sorting.

DESCRIPTION

Through Giving Factory @ Home, you and your family can have an impactful volunteer experience. You’ll collect and sort donations through a series of activities that replicate the volunteer stations we would normally facilitate in our Giving Factory. We cycle through different activities based on where we have the greatest need, and each of them is extremely helpful to our mission. If you would like to participate, please take to your closet and collect your donations!
