Volunteer Opportunity (Kid Friendly!): Cradles to Crayons



The Community Service and Family Events Committees are co-sponsoring this opportunity to serve the community with fellow Tigers and/or family.

We will roll up our sleeves and help provide local children with the basic essentials they need to thrive at home, at school, and at play. Volunteers work in stations to inspect, sort and package donations alongside other individuals and groups.


Volunteer shift from 10:00 am - 11:30 am. Afterwards, there will be an optional gathering from 11:30am - 1 pm at the Burning Bush Brewery, located a few blocks away. Rain or shine, this family friendly location offers indoor and outdoor space to catch up with your fellow Tigers over a drink or light bite.


Cradles to Crayons provides children from birth through age 12, living in homeless or low-income situations, with the essential items they need to thrive – at home, at school and at play. We supply these items free of charge by engaging and connecting communities.
