Boston is a community of caring. It was demonstrated in Colonial times, and even today after the tragic 2013 Boston Marathon bombing. While you’re here in January, volunteers will be working with one of Boston’s wonderful non-profit organizations, Cradles to Crayons. Begin your four-day Boston adventure at the Cradles to Crayons Giving Factory, where you will inspect, sort, and assemble customized packages of essential children’s items called KidPacks. These KidPacks are individualized with specific items and will be delivered to kids in need around the city.

Their mission is to provide homeless or low-income children, from newborns to age 12, with clothing, school supplies, toys, and more. Cradles to Crayons partners with social service organizations to connect communities that have surplus resources that are either new or in good condition with other communities that are in need. Last year, Cradles to Crayons donated packages to 87,000 children in Massachusetts and the Philadelphia area.

One hundred percent of your $75 USD registration fee will go directly to the charity. Pre-registration is required.

Network for the Needy® “Underwearness” Donation Drive

Help us spread “underwearness” by contributing to the 2014 Donation Drive, which benefits Boston Health Care for the Homeless (BHCH). BHCH patients live in shelters, on the streets and in temporary housing, and acquiring basic necessities can be a challenge. We invite you to participate in our UNDERWEARNESS Donation Drive to meet these needs. Don’t forget to pack NEW underwear or socks to help give back to BHCH or consider giving a cash donation to this cause.

Men and women in shelters also need “shower shoes” to help prevent the spread of athlete’s foot and other infections in public showers. Please consider expanding your donation to include new adult rubber flip-flops.

Donation bins will be available on site to collect all donated underwear, socks and flip-flops.

The Donation Drive is part of the PCMA Network for the Needy® initiatives that are supported through founding partner, Global Experience Specialists (GES).
