CRADLES TO CRAYONS
February 22, 2011

My agency is a distribution partner for Cradles To Crayons. I work in a transitional housing program, and use this fabulous service frequently as I help families settle into their new homes. They frequently come with little to nothing, and this is a great benefit to them. The fact that each order comes packed for each child is wonderful; it provides a more individualized experience for people who have often become nameless or faceless in the "system". As I delivered an order to a family with 3 chlldren and they excitedly opened their packages, one of them exclaimed, "It's like Christmas!".

MY ROLE:
Professional with expertise in this field & I facilitated getting needed clothing orders from this organization to our needy clients.
