Cradles to Crayons

Cradles to Crayons provides children from birth through age 12 living in homeless or low-income situations with the essential items they need to thrive – at home, at school and at play. They supply these items free of charge by engaging and connecting communities that have with communities that need.

We are collecting donations at BuxMont Unitarian Universalist Fellowship.  Items can be placed in the plastic  box on the sidewalk outside the front door.
