– Senator Katherine Clark is partnering with Cradles to Crayons to benefit
children in need. Cradles to Crayons collects new and gently used clothing, art
supplies, books, baby supplies like blankets and car seats, and other
necessities in drop boxes around the district. Collection boxes have been
placed in the Greenwood School and
the Dolbeare School and will remain
there until the first week of November.
On November 9, the collected items will be sorted at the Melrose Middle School, 350 Lynn Fells Parkway, from 10:00 am to 1:00 pm. Volunteers are needed, and students will be eligible for community service credit. Not only is this a great cause, but it is a lot of fun! If you have any questions or would like to volunteer please contact Mark McKinnon at 617-722-1206. For a full list of needed items please visit www.cradlestocrayons.org/boston.
