Come volunteer and network with a great group of young nonprofit professionals at the Cradles to Crayons Giving Factory, where we will roll up our sleeves and help provide local children with the basic essentials they need to thrive at home, at school, and at play. Your volunteer shift will begin with an orientation led by a Cradles to Crayons staff member and wrap-up with opportunities to network your fellow YNPN Chicago volunteers and learn more about the children you impacted during your shift.
What To Wear/Bring
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.
We also encourage you to donate new or gently-used items- including children's clothing, books, and toys - and bring them to your volunteer shift. Find more information on what to donate here.
