What we will do: Groups are separated into a clothing section, books section, and toys section. We will check donated items for quality, making sure clothing is not torn or dirty and that toys work. We will sort the items by age and package the items to be given away. Volunteers are encouraged to bring in new and gently used children's items to donate (clothing, books, toys, school supplies, and baby equipment). Right now, certain “hard to get items” are especially needed, including new socks and underwear (2T – 14/16) and all boy's clothing. A list of their Top 10 Most-Needed items is available from
RSVP: Please let us know if you are able to volunteer with us. E-mail: or call 717-477-1218.
After you RSVP, volunteers are asked to pre-register themselves with C2C. This will make sign-in simple and quick on our volunteer day! About Cradles to Crayons: They provide, free of charge, low-income and homeless children from birth to pre-teen the basic essentials they need to be safe, warm, ready to learn, and valued.
