Cradles to Crayons provides children from birth to age 12, living in low- income and homeless 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.
For the second year in a row, the entire Digilant Boston team gathered at the nonprofit Cradles to Crayons to support children in need. The staff grabbed shopping carts and packed items for specific children who needed clothing, toys, boys, coats, boots, and more.
10 Digilant employees participated in the Cradles to Crayons Backpack-a-thon event on Boston’s City Hall Plaza. Along with more than 700 other volunteers, the Digilant team packed 35,000 backpacks for students in need. The backpacks were filled with books and school supplies, such as pens, markers, folders, and notebook, and each child also received a hand-written “Well Wish Note” with a message for the start of their school year. Digilant was proud to sponsor the Cradles to Crayons Ready for School program and be a part of the Backpack-a-thon event.
