Members of the our Property Management group recently volunteered at Cradles to Crayons in Brighton, MA. Through donations that are processed and packaged by volunteers like ourselves, Cradles to Crayons distributes basic essentials through social service agencies and school partners to thousands of children living in poverty.
My colleagues and I contributed by “shopping” throughout the warehouse of donations to fill carts based on a selected child’s individual needs. Each JLL team of two, received a card with a child’s name, age, and a list of essential items that their service agencies requested. These items included winter coats, boots, hats, clothing, bedding, and books.
By the end of the day, we helped 76 children and enjoyed every minute of it. Cradles to Crayons is always looking for volunteers. We hope to be back soon.
