Public Servants doing Public Service
We have successfully filled all volunteer slots for Saturday! Thanks to all those who will be participating! We encourage all attendees to support Cradles To Crayons by donating to our virtual fund drive DONATE
Thank you for your support!
NIGP will once again this year be supporting the Forum host community through volunteer work and donations to Philadelphia's Cradles to Crayons. Cradles to Crayons is a non-profit organization that 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. Cradles to Crayons provides these necessities free of charge by engaging and connecting communities that have with communities that need.
Pre-registered NIGP volunteers will be working in the warehouse inspecting, sorting and packaging donations into “KidPacks” – a one week supply of essential children’s items tailored for specific in-need children.
Info for pre-registered volunteers:
If you would like to help out, please consider making a donation to the charity. Donate here.
