Help Kickstart the Grade 8 Day of Service

Donations needed for Cradles to Crayons
On our Eighth Grade Day of Service, June 14, 2018, Lincoln school students will volunteer at the Cradles to Crayons Giving Factory. We don’t want to go empty handed as there are more than 305,000 Massachusetts children, 12 years old and younger, who live in low-income or poverty-stricken households. In any given year, more than 100,000 of them will experience homelessness. 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. They supply these items free of charge by engaging and connecting communities that have with communities that need.

See below for the list of needed items. Look for the donation box near the school office. Want to
help with the Day of Service, contact Shari Churwin,

Cradles to Crayons accepts a wide range of new and gently-used items for children ages newborn to 12:

Most Needed Items:
Boys Pants 4/5-7/8
Boys Shirts 2T-12
Girls Shirts 2T-12
Twin Blankets
Boys and Girls sweaters

Enjoy the upcoming three-day weekend.
