At Cradles to Crayons, the organization is driven by a single goal: to make life better for children in need – which, at this time of the year, equates to helping local children feel safe, warm, ready to learn and valued.
While for many, back-to-school shopping is about new backpacks and classroom supplies, this nonprofit goes the extra mile.
