Sixth graders from SS. Simon and Jude School, West Chester, took a field trip to West Conshohocken Nov. 11 to visit the Cradles to Crayons facility that 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.
According to Cradles to Crayons’ website, items are offered “free of charge by engaging and connecting communities that have with communities that need.”
The facility’s Giving Factory refurbishes donated clothes, shoes, books and school supplies and distributes them to needy children. The SS. Simon and Jude students’ visit was an opportunity to learn more about charity and take part in the Giving Factory’s work.
