We volunteered, with some other local homeschoolers, at a fantastic organization this morning, Cradles to Crayons.
Here is some info on the organization -
Cradles to Crayons was founded in 2002, with the mission of providing to children ages 0 to 12 some of the most important basics of life—free of charge. These basics include clothing, school supplies, toys, and much more. In other words, we provide all the physical goods that children need to be safe, protected from the elements, and ready to learn. And by supplying them with high-quality used or new goods, we make children feel valued.
Our job today was to sort clothes and put together outfit kits for little girls - this was the perfect job for my fashionista!
She was very particular about the outfits and had to make sure that they all coordinated and could be mixed and matched.
The efforts of our small group alone helped 65 children in need today! This was a great way to start off a season of giving and to help us remember and be thankful for all that we are blessed to have! We hope to be able to go back the Giving Factory at least once a month to help out this incredibly worthwhile cause.
