Review for Cradles to Crayons, Newton, MA, USA

Rating: 4 stars  

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!".

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

...seeing the relief on parents' faces and the delight in chidren's eyes.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Communication with distribution partners might be better, and more times available for pick-ups.

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