This holiday season we are thrilled to be supporting the joint effort of NBC and Cradles to Crayons with their ‘Bundle Up Boston’ Initiative.  ‘NBC and Cradles to Crayons are teaming up to make sure every child has a coat to stay warm this winter.  For the third year in a row, our Bundle Up program encourages you to donate new or gently-used winter coats.’

Cradles to Crayons, will distribute the coats to a network of over 300 organizations in our area, including shelters, schools, and hospitals.  Cradles to Crayons is a Boston-area-based nonprofit whose mission is to provide children from birth through age 12 with the everyday essentials they need to thrive — at home, at school, and at play.

If you would like to participate, please consider the following two options:

  • We will be collecting new or gently used coat donations this Friday at the Turkey Challenge.
  • OR Shop the ‘Bundle Up Boston’ Amazon Wish List to purchase a new coat and have it donated directly to the Cradles to Crayons Giving Factory.  The shipping address should automatically appear at the top of the page when you proceed to check out.

We are incredibly thankful for your generosity and hope that this small act will bring happiness and warmth to these children during the holiday season.  Thank you for helping local children feel safe, warm, ready to learn, and valued!
