On May 3, MANNAM-Boston went to volunteer at Cradles to Crayons. We worked at the clothing station, assembling clothing packs for children in need. These packs are supposed to provide children with enough clothing for a whole week, however none of the packs we put together were able to be completed with new socks and underwear…
Why? Because there were none to pack.
Socks and underwear have to be new, they cannot be previously worn, and because of this, they are the least donated items. Hearing this, MANNAM decided to run a drive for all clothing items, with a special focus on NEW socks and underwear.
Of course, not everyone has to give socks or underwear, anything you have to donate is perfect, but if you can, next time you are out shopping, grab a few pairs of socks and undies for these children being cared for and supported by Cradles to Crayons!
Here is the list of items we are collecting:
And if you have any children’s accessories (belts, bags, hats etc) that would be great too!
Donation drop-off locations are at the bottom of the attached list. All information can also be found on our events page. If you have items to donate but cannot make it to these drop-off locations, please contact us and we will arrange a pick up. Please keep checking back as we try to add a few more convenient drop-off locations.
Thank you in advance for helping to make this drive a success, and for getting involved and giving of your time to make a difference in the lives of these children.
On July 20 we will be taking all these donated items to Cradles to Crayons and spending 2 hours volunteering to help sort and assemble kids clothing packs.
Contact us if you are interested in joining us!
