Review for Cradles to Crayons, Brighton, MA, USA
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.

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.
