Cradles to Crayons "Ready for School"

Getting local kids in-need ready to learn from head to toe.

The 2016 Cradles to Crayons “Ready for School” collection has officially come to a close. We will begin accepting like-new dresses again next year. Thank you!

The first day of school is exciting for most children, but for the ones who don’t have the clothes they need, it can be stressful.  At Jordan's Furniture, we want to ensure every child starts the school year off right. Each year, we partner with Cradles to Crayons to promote their “Ready for School” program, and help gather the school essentials kids need.  We collect donations at all Jordan’s locations, where people can drop off new and like-new clothing and shoes. Everything we collect is donated to Cradles to Crayons “Ready For School” program, and helps under-served children, from infant to age 12, living in homeless or low-income situations. Donated items are distributed by local, social services agencies in Massachusetts, New Hampshire and Rhode Island.

Cradles to Crayons vision is “that one day every child will have the essentials they need to feel safe, warm, ready to learn and valued.”
