CRADLES TO CRAYONS
February 18, 2011
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.
