Student and Community Groups

There are many ways for student and community groups to partner with Cradles to Crayons. Groups help us work toward our mission of providing each child with the essentials they need to thrive- at home, at school and at play. We help students learn the importance of service and how they can play a role in supporting local children in-need.
Our volunteer shifts are Wednesdays through Fridays from 10:00 am-12:00 pm and 1:30 pm-3:30 pm.
We have afternoon and evening shifts from 3:30 pm-5:30 pm and 6:30 pm-8:30 pm on the following Tuesdays:
  • June 6
  • June 20

Please note: We will not be offering evening shifts in July or August. Evening shifts we begin again in September.

We have weekend volunteer shifts from 10:00 am-12:00 pm and 1:30 pm-3:30 pm on the following dates:

If you are looking to bring your group to Cradles to Crayons to volunteer here are a few notes regarding your visit:

  • We require that you host a product collection prior to your visit. This is a rewarding way to engage students in our mission and model from start to finish. Visit our Host a Drive page for tips and ideas. If you forsee this requirement to be a hardship for your group please indicate this in your inquiry.
  • Adult to child (under 18) volunteer ratios as follows: bring 1 adult for every 3 elementary school students; bring 1 adult for every 5 middle school students; bring 1 adult for every 8 underclassmen (9th and 10th grades) and 1 adult for every 10 upperclassmen (11th and 12th grades).
  • All groups with volunteers under the age of 18 must have a Group Leader Responsibility form completed by an adult member of the group before beginning volunteer service.

Please fill out this form to schedule your visit. We look forward to working with you soon.
