  3. Hi Chris,

    I apologize for not being in touch! I just wanted to say thank you again for your support that will help us meet our goal of providing thousands of children across the Commonwealth with the essentials they need to be safe and warm through our Gear Up For Winter program. In the cold winter months, children living in homeless and low-income situations face a new set of challenges. For families already stretching budgets to pay for rent, heat, and groceries, providing a warm winter coat and other winter essentials is often not an option. In Massachusetts alone, there are more than 305,000 children ages 0-12 living in low-income or poverty stricken households. “There are children wearing sandals in the snow,” says one of our social service agency partners. “Shoes, boots, winter coats, and other winter gear that Cradles to Crayons provides help to prevent frostbite in these children.”

    As this economic climate hits disadvantaged families the hardest, Cradles to Crayons projects that we will receive over 17,000 requests for winter coats for the children we serve. These alarming numbers underscore the importance of volunteers, product drives, and financial gifts like yours to help us combat this critical need.

    “Josh, 10 and Krystal, 8 are living with their mom,” says a social worker from a local behavioral health center. “Mom is working full time but struggles to cover all of the monthly expenses and provide appropriate clothing. Josh and Krystal had to wear shorts and skirts to school in the freezing winter months. When the family came into my care, I ordered packages from Cradles to Crayons; the children were overjoyed to receive warm winter coats as well as pants and winter boots. Mom was overwhelmed, and after a few moments said ‘Meeting my children’s physical and emotional needs is what worries me the most. Today, I see both of those needs have been met, and I couldn’t be more thankful.’”

    On behalf of the thousands of children and families we will serve this winter, everyone at Cradles to Crayons thanks you for taking action and providing direct relief to the children who need it most.

    All my best,
