About Cradles to Crayons
The mission of C2C is to provide children living in low income and homeless situations from birth to preteen the basic essentials,free of charge, that they need to feel safe, warm, ready to learn. Additionally C2C provides a foundation for lasting social change through meaningful, tangible volunteer activities experienced by thousands of adults and children each year. How does C2C work? 

Collection:

We encourage communities to host collection drives for clothing, shoes, books, toys, coats, school supplies and baby equipment which they deliver to ‘The Giving Factory’ warehouse, located in West Conshohocken, PA.

Processing:

Hundreds of volunteers come to our warehouse, The Giving Factory, each month to sort and pack everyday essentials for individual children. 

Distribution:

The packs of everyday essentials, KidPacks, are distributed to children living in disadvantaged situations in the five-county Philadelphia region. 91% of our network of hundreds of social service partner agencies report that C2C saves time and helps them to be more effective in serving clients.
