Mark’s Moving Helps Cradles to Crayons Provide Clothing, Footwear to Local Children

May 10 2017

Mark’s Moving & Storage, Inc. is pleased to have served as a Cradles to Crayons donation drop-off location. The company helped the Boston-based charity last month collect clothing and footwear for thousands of local children.

Cradles to Crayons provides children from birth to age 12, living in low-income and homeless situations, with essential items. Each year, the charity enlists grade-school students to help collect these items and Mark’s Moving provided them a convenient and local drop-off station for donations.

With the support of Mark’s Moving, “this incredible statewide service initiative would not be possible,” said Michael Scottberg, a Cradles to Crayons representative, noting the company’s continued participation, flexibility and willingness to “help all kids reach their potential.”

This donation drive led to more than 14,000 children in low-income and homeless situations receiving a week’s worth of high quality clothing and footwear that, according to Cradles to Crayons, “they can wear with dignity.”

“Cradles to Crayons is a great program and provides a tremendous service to our communities,” said Mark Silverman, CEO and president of Mark’s Moving. “We’re grateful for the opportunity to help their efforts.”
