This organization has a fantastic mission and those that I have worked with have provided me with a great experience. From sorting donations, to folding clothes, cleaning toys and decorating birthday cards--there is so much effort and care that goes into creating a single pack for a single child. I think the personal touches that help develop each pack make C2C an unrivaled nonprofit to be a part of. The employees are great with feedback, very accessible, and an organized group of individuals. This organization is great for volunteers of all ages.

Great management of volunteer help. They have the process down to a science. They are flexible with many available times to help and can get you up to speed and contributing faster than most organizations I have worked with. Very friendly staff.

I am also a worker at a non profit and Cradle to Crayons has made it easier for our company to provide clothes, books for our clients. The clothes, toys, and books are always in great condition and they even provide a beutifully wrapped birthday gift for a child turning a year the month of the donation. Cradles has never missed in getting the brightest smiles from my clients and their children.

Recently, a group of my co-workers volunteered our time at the Conshohocken location. I was very impressed with the set-up. They had us working various stations throughout the day so that we could appreciate the whole process. A lot of times when I make donations (other than monetary), I wonder if my donations are being put to good use. With this organization, I know they are and it has a direct impact to the immediate area. As a result of my experience that day, I will always consider them on the top of my list when donating my children's things.

Our firm held our Community Service Day at the West Conshochocken location and the entire experience was a huge hit! The staff made coordinating the day with our large group a breeze. The facility was very impressive and the work that C2C does for the community is simply amazing and inspiring. Everyone that volunteered that day had a wonderful time and we left at the end of the day thankful for the opportunity to join in the good work that C2C does on a daily basis. We hope to have our annual community service day with this organization because it was such a wonderful experience.

My company ran a volunteering drive and one of the places that we could choose was Cradles to Crayons. I had a great experience helping out and the people who work at C2C were very passionate about what they do. What a great organization!

The people at Cradles to Crayons are super helpful with arranging a time to volunteer and they are just really great people to be around. The organization is also a wonderful thing, because all children deserve clothes, books, and toys.

Our company has been involved in many volunteering projects but this one was very rewarding to me on a personal level. Cradles to Crayons is doing such a great job connecting with the community and providing for the needs of children in a very direct, first person way. I felt rewarded in knowing the efforts, our team of volunteers put in, will be directly benifiting the children in our local communities. I will be volunteering again in the future. Children are our future and Cradles to Crayons is making their future better!

Our agency held a day of service where we (80 of us) volunteered with Cradles to Crayons. The experience was rewarding and a wonderful team building exercise. It was wonderful to know that the donated items we provided and our time was for such a wonderful cause.
