Pennsauken printing and marketing firm, ColorSource held their first-ever clothing drive in 2013. They asked their clients and colleagues for help, never expecting the amount of support that they would get. In the end, they collected over 600 pieces of children’s new and gently used clothing, in addition to toys, sneakers, strollers, baby accessories, diapers and school supplies.
All items were donated to Cradles to Crayons in West Conshohocken, PA, which provides children’s supplies and clothing to infants through age 12 who are living in low-income and homeless situations in Greater Philadelphia and Camden, NJ.
“We really wanted to do something this year to help out. I had read about this organization, and how they help make the holidays better for kids who have so little. I think that we forget how just one person can make a difference to others – and we are overwhelmed by the support we received from our clients and colleagues.” said owners Murray Ellis and Fred DeMarco.
