Cradles to Crayons Coat Drive



Donate winter clothes such as jackets or warm outerwear from infant size to adult medium, gear such as hats and scarves and gloves, and boots to Chicagoan children in need. There are donation boxes at every entrance to the Winnetka building, so make sure to drop off your donations as you enter the building!


Again, note that donation equals dignity. Make sure that your donation is in good shape. Although we are happy to receive donations from you, we will be unable to distribute donations that are torn, dirty, etc. Second, boots come in pairs! Help us keep our donations organized by putting boots in bags or otherwise making sure they stay together. Third and finally, make sure to coordinate with your family and friends for your donations!

Again, the winter drive runs through to the end of the day next Monday. Help a child in need!

What is the purpose of giving?

Last year, we showed this short video (~21 minutes) to our Board members, and most agreed that it made a big impact upon how they viewed the concept of "giving" usually commonplace in a school setting. For example, we all are familiar with canned food drives, clothing donations, etc., but how effective are these actions in alleviating the conditions that give rise to the problems? Please watch and be prepared to share your thoughts.
