Cradles to Crayons has helped many foster children in our organization. Many times children come into care with very little and Cradles to Crayons provides them clothing, shoes, books, toys and arts and crafts. For our babies they have provided diapers, wipes, shampoo and other baby items. They have also provided birthday gifts for the children. We appreciate the many kindnesses they have shown to our children.

I am a volunteer for a grade school in West Philadelphia, where 75% of the students are living below the federal poverty level. We met with Cradles to Crayons and the amazing and supportive staff provided us with information and resources to assist our families in need. From top to bottom, the staff is kind, compassionate and courteous. The process is extremely efficient. We enter the needs of the students on the C2C web site and our needs are quickly met. The systematic way that C2C works makes picking up the orders a breeze. The students at the school will also be able to give back by volunteering their time at Cradles to Crayons. Thank you Cradles to Crayons for supporting our students and boosting the self esteem.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in seeing the looks of joy on the students faces when they receive clothing, books and accessories from Cradles to Crayons. The students feel better about themselves since they look better in the clothing provided by C2C. C2C also provided the students with book bags and school supplies.

How can you change such a wonderful organization? I wouldn't change a thing, but I do try to discuss C2C with friends and family and encourage schools, organizations, families and corporations to spend time volunteering time at Cradles to Crayons.

I represent a non-profit agency that has benefited from the items that are donated to Cradles to Crayons. This past winter we were hit with a number of snow and ice storms that left the city feeling cold and tired. We were able to pick up a donation of children's coats and jackets to distribute to our young clients during this time and it made a tremendous diffence in their lives. The smiles on the faces of these children were priceless. Thank you forimproving the lives of these children and for helping to keep them warm during these cold winter months.

Cradles2Crayons does a wonderful job with supplying our consumers with the most appropriate age based toys and clothing. The items are always within a good quality and quantity. I appreciate the fast turnover in receiving the completed packages.

I am a social worker for an early intervention program in the Philadelphia suburbs. I have put in several orders for needy families for clothes, baby equipment, toys and care needs for children. They are always helpful, prompt and very nice to work with. This is a program that I appreciate so much that I bring items to donate and plan to volunteer with my children one day. My husband works for a company that volunteers 1 time a year at Cradles to Crayons and they report it is a great place to volunteer at. Thank you to all the staff and volunteers at Cradles to Crayons.

We are also a non profit organization who serves a large community and those who reside in it have encountered many circumstances that have effected them financially economically and emotionally. Cradles to Crayons has done more then provided us with season appropriate clothing, children s shoes, great books, educational games, items for newborns to toddlers and coats for the winter but they have aided us in being able to give all of this in exceptional condition. With the help of this organization we are able to relieve the stress and worry by supplying the needy with necessities with no strings attached. With our position in our community, our hearts to help and the proper resources, we can ultimately reverse the harsh effects of the economic struggles and begin to restore.

As a Preschool Education Center in Norristown, Pa, we serve mostly low income families. Cradles to Crayons Inc. has allowed us to help some of these families with essentials such as clothing, back packs and car seats. It is a priviledge to act as one of their distributors in the Norristown Area.

The children that needed clothing, books and carseats were given them free.

Let more organizations realize what a help they are in meeting the needs of our clients.
