Winter is incredibly challenging for many families we serve and 92% of the requests Cradles to Crayons will receive include an order for an Outfit Pack—a week’s worth of matched outfits, new socks, underwear, and pajamas.
For example, Kaya is 5 years old and just moved in with her grandmother because her home was not safe. Because she had to leave in a hurry, Kaya arrived with only the clothes on her back. Her grandmother had one extra set of clothes but not enough to last a week. Kaya was embarrassed when she had to wear the same shirt to kindergarten all week. Cradles to Crayons was able to provide Kaya with a comprehensive package that included a week’s worth of clothing which allowed her to go to school confident, warm, and ready to learn.
The Give Back with an Outfit Pack program lets you and your family, friends, and colleagues go shopping for desperately needed winter layers for children in need.
