Cradles to Crayons

Cradles to Crayons

ASMC Yankee Chapter Members,


 We have a great community service opportunity coming up in January.  Cradles for Crayons is an organization that helps provide donations of goods to disadvantaged children, such as books, school supplies, and more.  Their Boston chapter is located in Brighton, MA.  On January 21, they have an opening from 10am-12pm to have volunteers come in and help sort through the donations.  My plan would be to meet here at Hanscom AFB at 9am and carpool down to Brighton to help out.  I am willing to be one of the drivers.

Currently we have six people scheduled to help out, but we need more help.  Commute time would be about two hours (one hour there, one hour back), and the shift is for two hours.  Therefore, in order to meet our 20 hour minimum for it to qualify as an event, we need at least five people.  Obviously, the more the merrier.  Our POC at Cradles for Crayons says we could potentially bring up to 20 people.

Does anyone have the ability or the desire to help out on that Saturday?  You’d be looking at 9am-1pm on January 21 (includes both the commute and the event).  This will be first-come, first-serve as slots may fill up quickly.  Please let me know as soon as possible.  If our slots fill up, I will send out an email letting everyone know I cannot accept any more help.  Please only respond if you are 100% sure you can commit to this date.  Call me at the number below with any questions.


 Thank you all!
