Support our Gear Up for Winter Program!

A Massachusetts winter is unpredictable. It brings snow, below-freezing temperatures, and puts children without adequate protection at risk for cold weather illness and injury. For thousands of local children living in poverty, staying warm is a struggle indoors and outside.

You can help Cradles to Crayons support 40,000 children with coats, hats, and other warm essentials before the temperatures drop. Your financial gift from October 1 through March 31 helps ensure that thousands of local children will have the warm winter essentials to stay safe and warm throughout the harshest season.
