Event Description: Cradles to Crayons provides children (birth to age 12) living in low-income and homeless situations with the essential items. First-time volunteers are given a short introduction to Cradles to Crayons, and then groups are assigned to project areas, where a C2C representative introduces the project and remains with the group for the entire session to answer any questions. Tasks include sorting incoming donations, sorting clothing by type and size, sorting books by age group, cleaning and sizing boots and shoes, assembling outfits, assembling packages for individual recipients.
Most tasks involve standing for two-hour shift. Children (5-18) are welcome, but must be registered in advance so appropriate tasks can be assigned.
