“This is a day when parents come together with their children to give back to others in the community,” Cradles to Crayons Senior Manager of Family Philanthropy Suzanne Allen-Weise said. “They’re working together to model for their kids how they could give back. ”

“Cradles is a really special organization to us. It’s such a wonderful organization for us on giving back to children,” volunteer Betsy Rath said. “Also having our kids see it’s a wonderful place to be able to give back and volunteer. We all have a lot of stuff in our homes, especially after the holidays. It’s a really comfortable place to be. It’s a wonderful team-building exercise.”
