THE JOY OF SOX
January 19, 2012

The Joy of Sox is philanthropy at its best and purest form. I am so honored to be a small part of the work that is being done to ensure the health and well-being of the homeless in the Philadelphia and five county region. The work that Tom Costello and family are doing makes a huge impact, and it is so direct and inclusive. I am very impressed at how many people from various walks of life have rallied around this new organization, and it is because the work is humble, honest, and caring. The dignity of the homeless client is respected, and The Joy of Sox is poised to do just as much for the spirit as it is doing for the health and comfort of the homeless.

CRADLES TO CRAYONS
February 18, 2011

I learned about Cradles to Crayons from my mother - she works for a local company who had volunteered at the Conshohocken facility. As a mom of two young children who have outgrown various clothing and supplies, I was glad to know of a local donation option.

When I arrived to drop some items off, the reception by the staff could not have been more warm or appreciative. They helped me fill out a donation form for my records and thanked me so graciously. I asked some questions about what items they accept, how they distribute things, etc., and the staff members were informative and professional.

By the time I'd come home, I already had an email thanking me for my donation and providing follow-up information - so prompt and efficient!

It feels great to know that there is such a wonderful service that provides such needed and concrete help to children and families in the area. I will definitely be donating again, and am considering volunteering.

The Great!
