Catching Joy asks everyone to give if you can.
Having a warm winter coat is essential to every child’s well being during the cold winter months. In 2008, Cradles to Crayons—a Quincy-based organization dedicated to providing low-income and homeless children basic essentials free of charge– distributed 6,895 winter coats. During these tough economic times, Cradles to Crayons anticipates needing to outfit 10,000 children with the everyday essentials they need to stay safe and warm.
