This year marks the 10th Anniversary of Cradles to Crayons’ Ready for School program, which aims to provide 70,000 local Massachusetts homeless and low-income children with the essential back-to-school supplies and clothing they need to start the year prepared and excited to learn this year.
From June 13 through August 14, all Jordan’s Furniture store locations and the Taunton Distribution Center will collect donations of new and gently used clothing and shoes for children ages birth to twelve years old in support of the Ready for School program.
Join us on June 18 from 10am-2pm!
Kick-off the collection at Jordan’s Furniture in Reading, MA with Cradles to Crayons and special guests from MAGIC 106.7 and HOT 96.9.
