Honors Program Volunteers at Cradles to Crayons

Seven students from the Honors Program at Holy Family University volunteered at Cradles to Crayons on Saturday, December 16, 2024. After spending several weeks collecting clothing and school supplies from the campus community, the students transported the items to the Cradles to Crayons warehouse facility, and then worked for two hours sorting books for distribution to children.

Cradles to Crayons provides children in need with clothing, schools supplies, personal hygiene supplies, and books, collecting funds and gifts-in-kind through community drives and corporate donations. Volunteers at the "Giving Factory," where Holy Family's students worked, then process and package the donations, passing them along to service partners who distribute the items directly to local disadvantaged children.
