Volunteer at Cradles to Crayons
April 6 @ 2:00 pm - 4:00 pm UTC
Join us as we help the folks at Cradles to Crayons organize and distribute clothing to children in need in the Greater Boston area. We’ve done this a couple of times, and it’s fast, fun and impactful. To volunteer, click HERE to email Rae Mintz! A volunteer shift in The Giving Factory Warehouse involves hands-on processing of the donated goods that flow in on a regular basis. Each station in our warehouse includes inspecting, sorting, and packaging donations to ultimately be distributed to the children we serve. When You Arrive A Cradles to Crayons staff member will greet you in the lobby and lead you to the Forum area of our Giving Factory. Your shift will start promptly at your scheduled time and will begin with a brief orientation. The orientation includes a brief overview about Cradles to Crayons and important logistical information about The Giving Factory (bathrooms, water, etc.). You and other volunteers will then be escorted to your assigned stations. At your station, your volunteer leader provides instructions about your task for the shift and will be present during the entire shift to answer questions or provide assistance. About 15 minutes prior to the end of your shift, you will return to the Forum for a brief wrap-up.
