I believe that Cradle To Crayons can use every dollar given. They look for ways to maximize the way that they can help children in our communities.

This is an impressive organization!

My first experience with C2C was through our school, the Shipley School, where I participated in a number of clothing & equipment drives. During that time heard so many positive things about C2C that when I had additional items to donate I decided to
visit the drop location myself. The building was clean and well-organized. I was greeted by friendly and dedicated volunteers who helped me unload my car and gave me a tour of the facility. I could see so clearly how their system worked -- items would be collected, sorted and eventually allocated to those who were most in need of them.

During my tour, a group of people from a law firm were volunteering their time that day. They looked to be enjoying themselves and getting a lot accomplished. I plan to take my girls to the facility to volunteer in the future.

The Great!

This is a terrific organization that helps the needs of so many. My students at J.R. Masterman have done clothing fundraisers for them over the years as they reach out to families in need right in our community. We are lucky to have such a group.

Cradles to Crayons is a well run organziation that fills a true void in the non-profit world. The organization is very effective and efficient. I suggested my neighbor's daughter have her birthday party there as she was looking for a positive world experience rather than more "stuff." The girls were taught a bit about the C2C mission so that they would understand how their efforts contributed, and then kept busy with meaningful work. They had a great time AND felt like the really did something to benefit others. I also think the program targeted at high school kids over the summer is an excellent idea, teaching kids to care for others and learn to give back, as well as the benefits of volunteering.

The Great!

Interactions with Corporate organizations - very educaitonal and professional. Interactions with individual volunteers - very welcoming and encouraging.

Change the dates / times they will accept donations to that it is more convenient for folks that do work to make donations. Have volunteer event between Christmas and New Year's, or other holidays when kids are off from school so that they can participate in volunteer efforts.

What specific problem, purpose, priority, or project prompted your gift?

Need for so many organizations to have acccess to children's items on demand, as they do not have place to store for when needed - so obvious and yet I had not thought about this issue.

Why did you make your donation at this time?

A well run organization that I know will benefit so many.

What would you tell others about this organization?

Incredibly useful and well run.

The church I attend holds a Yard Sale for Kids' Stuff twice a year. During the sale we encourage people to buy items and donate them at our C2C Collection Station. In order to prepare to educate the congregation about C2C, I took our videographer to the warehouse. We got an in-depth look at the whole process, from inspecting and sorting donations to the preparation of bags of goods to go out the door. We were impressed. So was our congregation. We received a truckload of donations and are convinced that every item wound up in the hands of someone who needed that item.

Because C2C is there, I have found an organization into which I can pour a significant investment in time and energy and feel totally confident that my efforts are truly going to make a difference in the greater community in which I live.

I consider myself very well informed about their operation and I gave this question serious thought. I honestly can't think of anything I would change.

When I first learned about Cradles to Crayons through a friend, I immediately liked the idea of sharing items instead of paying for them. On my first trip to the drop off site, I was invited in for a tour of the facility in Conshohocken. It was well organized and very clean, They have a very thoughtful approach to providing age appropriate toys, school supplies, books and clothing to children in need. From donor to recipient, the guide showed me the process of how contributions directly help children. I now collect items from my neighbors and make monthly trips to Cradles to Crayons. They do an excellent job!

I live outside of Philadelphia and wanted to donate some items that my children were no longer using. I have donated to other organizations but have just never been clear how my donations have been used. With Cradles to Crayons there has Nefertiti been a question in my mind wheee my donation is going. Everyone at the donation center was well informed, enthusiastic to be there, and helpful. I know that everything I donate is needed and appreciated.
