Overview

Mission Statement

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. We supply these items free of charge by engaging and connecting communities that have with communities that need.


Background Statement

Founded in 2002 by CEO Lynn Margherio, Cradles to Crayons was shaped by a vision that existing community resources could be leveraged to benefit economically disadvantaged children, bridging the gap between those who have and those who are in need.

Cradles to Crayons officially opened its doors in Quincy, Massachusetts in 2002, and after five successful years providing critically needed items, the Cradles to Crayons model was expanded to help children in Philadelphia, PA. In 2011, we relocated our Massachusetts Giving Factory to a larger space in Brighton with the goal of doubling our impact. Cradles to Crayons’ unique business model provides an avenue through which children’s products in good and working condition can be recycled in a socially and environmentally responsible way.
 In 2013, Cradles to Crayons assessed national poverty rates for children and took a strategic look at the organization's growth. With more than 34million children living in low-income situations across the United States, the organization announced that it would expand into new markets. Our third site, in Chicago's Logan Square, opened its doors in August, 2016, and we are on track to serve our millionth child, across sites, this year.

Cradles to Crayons is looked to as a leader in the non-profit sector. In 2010, Cradles to Crayons was recognized as an innovative grassroots organization and received the esteemed Neighborhood Builder Award from Bank of America. In that same year, Cradles to Crayons was recognized with the “Partnership of the Year” award from the Boston Business Journal for our work with Staples. In 2011, Cradles to Crayons was chosen by Massachusetts Governor, Deval Patrick, to host his inaugural Project 351 event, a day of public service with 8th Grade representatives from each of Massachusetts’ 351 cities and towns and has continued to work with Project 351 as a host site for their annual launch on Martin Luther King Jr. Weekend and as a site for one of their Spring Service Projects.  CEO Lynn Margherio was honored to be a recipient of the 2013 Lewis Hine Professional Service Award from the National Child Labor Committee for her leadership of Cradles to Crayons. Also in  2013, Cradles to Crayons was chosen as the recipient of Blue Cross Blue Shield of Massachusetts’ “Community Partner of the Year Award” for our outstanding work with the BlueCrew. In 2014, for the sixth consecutive year, Cradles to Crayons earned designation as a Four-Star Charity by Charity Navigator for outstanding financial management, accountability and transparency.

Programs

Everyday Essentials

Cradles to Crayons (Cradles) operates year-round to support disadvantaged youth across the Commonwealth of Massachusetts, providing the essentials each child needs to overcome their unique situations and excel both inside and outside of the classroom. Our process begins with grassroots donation drives, held in neighborhoods and corporate communities. Items collected in these drives or donated by individuals are then dropped off at the “Giving Factory” our warehouse in Brighton. 
The warehouse functions as an efficient processing center and, equally important, serves as a forum for large scale tangible and meaningful volunteer opportunities. Our volunteers sort and inspect donations for the highest quality items, making sure items are either new or are gently used. Because we believe that the children we serve should feel valued and proud to receive packages from Cradles, if any donations do not meet our high standards for quality, they are recycled and reused in an environmentally conscious manner through partnerships with the Salvation Army and Goodwill. Quality donations are packaged into personalized "KidPacks” filled with clothing, shoes, books, arts and crafts, and often birthday presents. KidPacks are picked up by a Cradles social service partner and brought directly to children and their families free of charge.
 In order to connect our children with backpacks, seasonal clothing, books, and more, we actively collaborate with more than 300 social service partners representing agencies across Massachusetts including ABCD, Horizons for Homeless Children, Boston Medical Center, and the Massachusetts Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Children. Through these partnerships we are able to identify and reach children who are most in need of our services. Our online ordering system allows registered partners to place customized orders for KidPacks based on a child’s age, size, gender, interests and unique situation.

Program Short-Term Success 
Every year Cradles surveys our socials service partners to gain insight into our work. Respondents to our 2015 partner survey reported:
 
  • 88% of respondents reported that because of items Cradles provides, families were able to use the money saved to purchase groceries and cover other basic expenses.
  • 70% of respondents reported that without Cradles' aid, their children would have to go without the basic items we provide for them.
  • 75% of respondents stated that Cradles plays a critical role in developing strong client relationships and/or introducing clients to programs
Program Long-Term Success  More than 305,000 children ages 0-12 are living in low-income or poverty stricken households in Massachusetts. Since 2002, Cradles to Crayons has supported children living in critical situations by distributing more than 356,000 packages of essential items, including more than 183,000 backpacks.
Program Success Monitored By  Our network of social service partners is surveyed annually in order to gain insight into the impact of our work. The results of this survey provide us with benchmarks against which we can measure our progress, the effect that Cradle’s programs have on the children we serve, and the areas in which we need to improve.
Examples of Program Success  Joanna Rees from Bridge Boston Charter School tells us about Shauna: “Shauna was distracted at school. She was unable to sit still and was not making close friends. Shauna was wearing pants too tight to re-button on her own after bathroom trips. Shauna was embarrassed but told her teachers her mother ‘pushed her stomach in’ to make the pants fit. After receiving new pants from Cradles, Shauna has made friends and feels more comfortable and confident.” 87% of our partners state that items received from Cradles positively impacts the self-esteem of the children we serve.

Gear Up For Baby

The first years of life are a critical period in a child’s physical and cognitive development. Studies consistently show a strong association between economic difficulties and compromised healthy development. As a result, infants and toddlers living in high-risk environments need additional assistance to promote positive growth. Cradles to Crayons’ Gear Up for Baby program focuses on providing baby clothing, hygiene items and safety gear that each child needs to begin their life on an even playing field.
The number of requests Cradles to Crayons receives for infant and toddler items continues to grow each year. In 2014, we expect to fill 14,000 requests for assistance for infants and toddlers up to age three. To help assure that we have an adequate supply of specific items that are difficult to keep in stock, including strollers and car seats, we highlight our Gear Up for Baby program in May and June and encourage supporters to host a special C2C Baby Shower. We also provide an updated, easy-to-use shower "Toolkit" on our website.

Program Short-Term Success 
Every year Cradles to Crayons survey’s our socials service partners to gain insight into our work. Respondents to our 2012 partner survey reported:
  • 87% reported a package from C2C allows parents to feel less stressed knowing the basic needs of their child have been met.
  • 60% reported that a package from C2C positively impacts the safety of a family’s home.
Program Long-Term Success

The results of this survey provide us with benchmarks against which we can measure our progress, the effect that C2C’s programs have on the children we serve, and the areas in which we need to improve.
Examples of Program Success  A C2C social service at South Boston WIC tells us of a family they serve: “Baby Kendra’s mom was laid off and evicted. Their landlord threw their belongings out, and all of them were stolen. The only clothes they owned were those on their backs, and Kendra was sleeping in a pack ‘n’ play. Kendra needed clothing and general baby equipment in order to stay warm and safe.” Kendra’s mother was able to connect with one of our social service agency partners, who placed an order with C2C for items for her child – now her family can live safely, and knowing that people care has given her hope.

Gear Up For Winter

In the cold winter months, children living in poverty face an additional set of challenges. For families already stretching budgets to pay for rent and groceries, providing adequate indoor heat, a warm winter coat and other winter essentials is often not an option. Children without warm winter coats are at a high risk of suffering from cold-related illnesses like frostbite and hypothermia. Throughout New England’s winter season we hear countless stories of parents who keep their children home from school because they do not have a warm winter coat for the children to safely wait for the school bus. Children living in low-income families are twice as likely to walk to school, particularly in Boston, making it even more important for the children Cradles to Crayons serves to have a warm coat and boots to safely survive winter. 

To combat this seasonal need, Cradles to Crayons’ Gear Up for Winter program works to provide the children we serve with critical items like warm clothes, coats, boots, and other necessary supplies they need to survive and thrive throughout the winter.

Program Success Monitored By  Our network of social service partners is surveyed annually in order to gain insight into the impact of our work. The results of this survey provide us with benchmarks against which we can measure our progress, the effect that Cradles to Crayons' programs have on the children we serve, and the areas in which we need to improve.
Examples of Program Success  One of Cradles to Crayons social serve partner tells us of a family who received a winter coat from Cradles to Crayons: “Lily’s mother cried when she saw the beautiful and warm winter jacket that was in her pack. She told me that Lily only had a ripped coat for the year and there was no money for a new one. This coat and clothing made all the difference to this struggling family. It was one less thing to worry about.”

Ready for School

Cradles to Crayons' Ready for School campaign stems from the philosophy that education is one of the most important factors that shapes a child’s future. To succeed in school, children need to arrive emotionally, mentally, and physically prepared and able to learn. Children living in low-income or homeless situations do not have access to the basic resources needed in order to enter school at the same academic level as their peers.

To help alleviate the disadvantages faced by thousands of local children, Cradles to Crayons will distribute 60,000 new backpacks full of age-appropriate school supplies to children across the Commonwealth in 2016. Most of the backpacks are filled at our high-visibility Backpack-A-Thon event on Boston’s City Hall Plaza. Our annual Backpack-A-Thon is an extraordinary and inspiring day of service when more than 600 volunteers join with us to form an amazing assembly line and stuff our backpacks.

Examples of Program Success 
Opening a new box of markers or unwrapping new notebooks can mean so much to the children we serve, but those actions represent so much more. Aria, one of the students who received a backpack from Cradles to Crayons wrote: Dear Cradles to Crayons,
 
Thank you for everything that you guys gave us in the backpacks, like a calculator, folders, erasers, pencils and 2 notebooks. I wouldn’t have had them if it wasn’t for you. I think when I grow up I want to be like you guys. I want to be a person that will give stuff to other people that can’t afford things. When someone wants help or materials, I want to be able to get them what they want. Thank you again for everything, Aria

Spring Greening

Cradles to Crayons' Spring Greening initiative focuses on leveraging community partnerships in a dual way to make a significant impact. We encourage individuals, families, organizations and corporations to re-use, re-purpose, and re-cycle children’s items in order to serve local children living in homeless and low-income situations. By doing so, they will also reduce the number of  items that go into landfills each year. During the months of March and April, C2C empowers youth, individuals and corporations to educate their peers on the importance of re-cycling, and to host their own grassroots donation drives to garner vital children’s product. Spring Greening provides an avenue for Crayons to Crayons to actively engage local schools, Boy & Girl Scout troops, faith-based organizations and various community groups in the fight against local childhood poverty.

Impact

The Impact tab is a section on the Giving Common added in October 2013; as such the majority of nonprofits have not yet had the chance to complete this voluntary section. The purpose of the Impact section is to ask five deceptively simple questions that require reflection and promote communication about what really matters – results. The goal is to encourage strategic thinking about how a nonprofit will achieve its goals. The following Impact questions are being completed by nonprofits slowly, thoughtfully and at the right time for their respective organizations to ensure the most accurate information possible.


1. What is your organization aiming to accomplish?

--

2. What are your strategies for making this happen?

--

3. What are your organization’s capabilities for doing this?

--

4. How will your organization know if you are making progress?

--

5. What have and haven’t you accomplished so far?
