We are challenging you to match our $1,000 grant to C2C!
Cradles to Crayons supplies low-income and homeless children in Massachusetts with the essentials they need to thrive. In the year 2020, this means face masks! In fact, face masks are currently Cradles to Crayons' most needed item. The link below takes you to an Amazon wish list, containing the preferred brands and products, per Cradles to Crayons, but you may also purchase masks from other stores. https://www.amazon.com/hz/wishlist/ls/120RZZ6035MW5?ref_=wl_share
Children and youth sizes are preferred, but adult sizes are also needed for older children. Please sendall masks to YCOM Katherine Ballas at 1970 Commonwealth Avenue #44, Brighton, MA 02135. (Katherine's address is already connected to the Amazon wish list.) Masks will be blessed before they are delivered to the Giving Factory in Newtonville. Email Katherine at email@example.com with any questions.
Another way to help Cradles to Crayons is through a monetary donation. Through the month of September, the Mission and Outreach Committee will match all donations from the congregation to Cradles to Crayons, up to $1000! Double your impact by giving through our website to Cradles to Crayons or mailing/sending a check to church made out to PPC with "Cradles to Crayons" in the memo line. Either way you help-- masks or cash-- we appreciate your support for this great organization!
