On Saturday, October 3, a team of TPS parents and students met at the Cradles to Crayons warehouse in Conshohocken to help sort donations. Cradles to Crayons is an organization that works with social service organizations throughout the region to provide vital resources for children. (We learned that for families in deep poverty – a family of four existing on $11,000/year – there is one book for every 300 kids.)
Our shift started with writing notes of encouragement that will go into backpacks filled with school supplies. We then did "triage," sorting donations by type of clothing. Our TPS team worked non-stop for two hours and left excited to connect with Cradles to Crayons again in the future. Thanks to those who came out!
