    Service Event: Cradles to Crayons Giving Factory

    Service Event at Cradles to Crayons

    Come roll up your sleeves with YNPN Chicago at the Cradles to Crayons Giving Factory warehouse! We'll inspect, sort, and package donations that will help provide local children with the basic essentials they need to thrive- at home, at school, and at play. The Cradle to Crayons model not only runs on volunteers but also the generous donations that they bring with them.

    Attendees are encouraged to bring one of their most-needed items: new pajamas (up to youth large), winter boots, or new bath towels. Finally, the Giving Factory is a warehouse environment. Volunteers are encouraged to wear closed-toed shoes and layered clothing they do not mind getting dirty. Volunteers work in stations to inspect, sort and package donations alongside other individuals and groups.

    Space is limited for this event.
