Work side-by-side with your BEPC colleagues, network, have fun, AND support an important mission at the same time. We will break into teams to process incoming donations at the Cradles to Crayons Giving Factory, and assemble outgoing packages for young people in need. Then we’ll enjoy lunch together before heading back downtown.

What is Cradles to Crayons?
The Mission: 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 that have with communities that need.
The Model: Cradles to Crayons collects new and nearly new children’s items through grassroots community drives and corporate donations. Donations are then processed and packaged by volunteers, and are distributed to disadvantaged children across the state through a collaborative network of social service agencies and school partners.
