Give Back with an Outfit Pack: Spring

Most 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.

The Give Back with an Outfit Pack program lets you and your family, friends, and colleagues go shopping for desperately needed clothing for children in need.

How does it work?

Below are individual shopping lists for the children Cradles to Crayons will serve. The lists reflect the most needed essentials to help serve Chicagoland children this spring. Click on an image below to download your shopping list.








Our Spring Greening Program aims to distribute hundreds of Outfit Packs to Chicagoland children this spring. Get everyone involved and directly support the children in our community:
  • Shop with your children and teach them the value of philanthropy,and giving back. Let them pick out the outfits. Or, add the extra items to your shopping cart next time you go shopping for your own children.
  • Host a party and ask guests to bring items to pack an Outfit Pack (or 2!)
  • Challenge your coworkers to see who can create the cutest outfits, or who can create the most Outfit Packs! Get the whole office involved.

Your completed Outfit Pack can be dropped off at the Giving Factory, or one of our many drop off locations. Contact Catherine McDonough, Manager of Community Engagement, at (312) 967-1521 with any questions.
