How It Makes A Difference

More than 20 million American children currently live below 200% of the federal poverty line (a total of $53,000 for a family of four, annually). All are at risk of being clothing insecure. Not having appropriate clothing harms a child™s health, safety, and self-esteem, factors known to impact a child™s academic performance and long-term success. Cradles to Crayons® believes that all children should have what they need at home, at school, and at play. We™ve been connecting communities to provide no-cost access to these essentials since 2002. Now, thanks to Giving Factory Direct, we can go beyond our current service areas to support those 20 million children across the country.
