I can't say enough about the impact that C2C has on our surrounding communities. Rarely do you see a relatively new organization like this continue to increase its outreach the way C2C has over their first 3+ years. The staff and management team are excellent and this organization is sure to be a fixture in the Delaware Valley for many years to come.

Make sure they receive more corporate, private, and government funding so they can further increase their footprint into Chester County.

I have been involved with the Cradles to Crayon for some time both as a Board member and a volunteer. They are a well run organization and have done an outstanding job managing their phenomenal growth and serving their client needs. Their model of recycling and giving back is sustainable and easy to support. It's rare to come across an organization that will allow all members of the family to get involved from a volunteer perspective. Cradles to Crayons allows for meaningful, hands-on volunteering. It's a great organization and one with which I'm proud to be involved.

I have been involved with C2C since its inception in Philadelphia and have only gained appreciation and enthusiasm for this great organization. One of the things I love the most is that C2C by definition brings communities together. In providing the valuable service of delivering essential items (clothes, school supplies, books, etc) to low-income and homeless children C2C creates community collaborations - volunteers from every source imaginable (families, corporations, schools, faith-based orgs, etc.) accomplish much of the work and partnerships with social service agencies enable distribution of the products to the children. C2C had a deep and measurable impact from the day it opened its doors; everyone wins by supporting and working with Cradles to Crayons.

The Great!

I have been an Advisory Board member in Philadelphia for several years and seen C2C grow from one FT staff member to 7+ staff serving over 50,000 children in just 3 years. It has been exciting and rewarding to participate in this growth and to support them in their important work.

If possible, it would be great to figure out how to expand even faster as there is such a need to fill, not only in the greater Philadelphia area.

Every year, Cradles to Crayons engages thousands of individuals in fun, meaningful volunteer opportunities. We welcome volunteers as young as 5 to roll up their sleeves and help to provide local in-need children with the essential items they need and deserve. Together, children and adults inspect, sort, and package new and like-new donations into customized "C2C KidPacks". Activities are appropriate for individuals, families, students, community and corporate groups. Our Giving Factory warehouse can accommodate up to 200 volunteers at a time, making volunteering easy and accessible for company or department wide service days.
