Cradles to Crayons (C2C) was launched in 2002 by Lynn Margherio with the mission to provide, free of charge, children living in low income and homeless situations from birth to pre-teen the basic essentials they need to feel safe, warm, ready to learn, and valued. By partnering with schools, corporations and community groups for donations, and with social-service organizations serving homeless and low-income families, we connect communities that have surplus new or used items in good condition with communities that desperately need access to those resources. In 2011, over 24,000 volunteers of all ages and backgrounds worked in the Boston “Giving Factory” to sort, clean, and assemble donations for over 55,000 packages to be delivered through our social-service partners.
