Boston Blue Hens Volunteer at Cradles to Crayons

Saturday, November 22, 2014, 10:00 AM
Optional lunch at 12:00

The "Giving Factory" at Cradles to Crayons (155 North Beacon Street, Brighton, MA)

Cost: Free (please register, as space is limited.)

Join other Blue Hens for a service activity at Cradles to Crayons, which provides children from birth to age 12 living in homeless or low-income situations with the essential items they need to thrive at home, at school and at play.

Cradles to Crayons collects new and like-new children's items. Donations are processed and packaged by volunteers to be distributed to disadvantaged children across the state. Volunteers are invited to bring a donation of new or gently-used children's clothing, toys, or supplies on the day of the event.

Exact on-site duties will be determined upon arrival, but will involve organizing and sorting donations at the Giving Factory Warehouse. Alumni and guests who register for this event will receive a follow-up email from the Boston Board to register on the C2C site prior to the event (a link will be sent).

After volunteering, join us for an optional casual lunch at a nearby restaurant (not included).
