At Cradles to Crayons, we believe that one day every child will have the essentials they need to feel safe, warm, ready to learn, and valued. As a volunteer at C2C, together we fulfill this vision and can make sure Chicagoland’s most under-served kids have everything they need to thrive—at home, at school, and at play. Our volunteers—both adults and children—power our mission. When you volunteer with us, you join thousands of service-oriented individuals who have already made a significant impact in our community.
Volunteering has been shown to benefit your mental health. Our mission at Project Helping is to make it ridiculously easy to volunteer. By volunteering through us, you can meet new people, make a difference in your community, and improve your mental wellness! Learn more at projecthelping.org/volunteer
