Are you looking for regular volunteer opportunities on weekdays or weekends? Are you wanting to make a big impact on the lives of local Chicagoland children and have fun while impacting thousands? Cradles to Crayons is the place for you!

Join our Community "Champion Corps" of regular volunteers! These volunteers are vital in bringing donated product from various drop-off locations to our Giving Factory in Logan Square, key areas include: 

  • Hyde Park
  • Bridgeport
  • Beverly
  • Bronzeville

Our Champion Volunteers will preferably live in the above areas, and have access to a car the size of an average sedan or larger. You must be willing to drive donations to The Giving Factory at least once a month. 

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 connecting and engaging Chicagoland communities in three easy ways:

  1. New and nearly new children’s items are collected through grassroots community drives and corporate donations.
  2. Donations are then processed and packaged by volunteers in our warehouse, The Giving Factory(r).
  3. Packages from The Giving Factory are distributed to local disadvantaged children - through our collaborative network of diverse service partners.
