Join us as we roll up our sleeves and help provide local children with the basic essentials they need to thrive—at home, at school and at play. We’ll be helping to inspect, sort and package essential items (e.g., clothing, shoes, books, toys and school supplies) that have been donated for disadvantaged children from birth through age 12.
Our volunteer shift will begin with an orientation led by a Cradles to Crayons staff member and end with a wrap-up and an opportunity to learn the number of children we impacted during our shift and to take group pictures.
Anyone age 5 and above can volunteer. Volunteers under 18 years old must have an adult chaperone.
Please arrive by 9:45 a.m., and wear closed-toed shoes and clothing that can get dirty. The warehouse can be warmer or cooler based on the weather outside, so we recommend bringing layers that you can remove during your shift.
You are encouraged to bring items with you to donate at the volunteer visit. View the full list of accepted donations.
