Family Leadership Circle

Empowering Children. Strengthening Families. Building Community.

Russo familyThe Family Leadership Circle (FLC) is Cradles to Crayons’ group of generous and dedicated families who play a critical role in sustaining our mission to provide local children with the essential items they need to thrive.

Members of the Family Leadership Circle give $1,000 or more annually and receive special acknowledgement as well as opportunities to come together to foster empathy, community responsibility, and good citizenship in their children through the shared experience of volunteering and giving to children and families in need.  FLC families are invited to special events and given priority access to family volunteer events.

Why join the Family Leadership Circle?

“I think that families should join the FLC because it’s a great way for busy parents and kids to come together to learn about and to actually help families in need.

As a mother, I know what the needs of a growing family are, how hard it can  be to meet those needs, and how quickly they change. I like volunteering at C2C because they directly serve individual children and have a high-impact, tangible effect on children. If we can teach our kids at an early age that it is important and satisfying to give to others, they will carry that lesson with them into adulthood. The FLC is a fun way to teach kids about the benefits of philanthropy.
– Katie, FLC Parent
