CRADLES TO CRAYONS
February 19, 2011

I am a volunteer for a grade school in West Philadelphia, where 75% of the students are living below the federal poverty level. We met with Cradles to Crayons and the amazing and supportive staff provided us with information and resources to assist our families in need. From top to bottom, the staff is kind, compassionate and courteous. The process is extremely efficient. We enter the needs of the students on the C2C web site and our needs are quickly met. The systematic way that C2C works makes picking up the orders a breeze. The students at the school will also be able to give back by volunteering their time at Cradles to Crayons. Thank you Cradles to Crayons for supporting our students and boosting the self esteem.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in seeing the looks of joy on the students faces when they receive clothing, books and accessories from Cradles to Crayons. The students feel better about themselves since they look better in the clothing provided by C2C. C2C also provided the students with book bags and school supplies.

How can you change such a wonderful organization? I wouldn't change a thing, but I do try to discuss C2C with friends and family and encourage schools, organizations, families and corporations to spend time volunteering time at Cradles to Crayons.
