Cradles to Crayons

Cradles to Crayons provides children from birth through age 12, living in homeless or low-income situations, with the essential items they need to thrive – at home, at school and at play. They supply these items free of charge by engaging and connecting communities. New and nearly new children’s items are collected through grassroots community drives and corporate donations. Donations are then processed and packaged by volunteers in their warehouse, The Giving Factory. Packages from The Giving Factory are distributed to local children through a collaborative network of diverse service partners. HPCF’s grant supports the distribution of basic needs to children in Highland Park and Highwood.
