Support Local Children in Need by Donating to Cradles for Crayons; Curtis Hall Drop-off

Print More

Cradles to Crayons is partnering with Boston Centers for Youth & Families and Boston Children’s Museum to call on Boston residents to participate in a city-wide collection of children’s essentials.

As communities take on spring cleaning and clear out their closets this season, the Boston-based nonprofit asks to keep the collection in mind and donate any new and gently used clothing, shoes, books, and small toys at one of the participating drop-off points throughout the city.

The drive will culminate in the fun, hands-on Boston Collect & Sort volunteer event at Boston’s Benjamin Franklin Institute of Technology Auditorium on May 4.

Collections are ongoing through May 3 at the following drop-off locations:

BCYF Curtis Hall Community Center – Jamaica Plain
20 South St.
Jamaica Plain, MA 02130

BCYF Roche Community Center – West Roxbury
1716 Centre St.
West Roxbury, MA 02132
