See below for what items are being collected… |

WHAT TIME?Bins will be available for self-service drop off from 9AM-1PM. Volunteers will be available to help you with your items from 1PM-2PM.
WHERE?Meet us on Francis Street, out front of Lawrence in the courtyard to the right of the front doors.
WHO IS THIS FOR?Cradles to Crayons
Hear what Cradles to Crayons has to say: For families in need, a Massachusetts winter can be debilitating. Our Gear Up for Winter program supplies warm winter gear to children whose families struggle just to stay warm. By providing items like coats, hats, gloves, and warm clothing, we can help prepare children for the winter before it becomes an emergency.
Here’s What Cradles to Crayons Needs…Due to Covid-19 related challenges, we are currently only collecting:
Clothing (gently used & new, size newborn to adult medium, all seasons)
Winter Outerwear (gently used & new, size newborn to adult medium)
Footwear (gently used & new, up to size 11, everyday shoes & winter boots)
New Face Masks (reusable only)
Do you take socks & underwear? Yes, but NEW ONLY.
What if the clothing has a stain on it? Please do not donate stained or ripped clothing.
Here’s a FLYER with visuals on what’s OK and not OK to donate.Thanks in advance for checking your donations for us.
