This year, WGBH is partnering with local nonprofit Cradles to Crayons to collect donations of new socks and underwear, and new or gently used clothing for children in need. Through their Ready For School initiative, Cradles to Crayons works to level the playing field for all children by providing essential items needed to start school on the right foot. Customized KidPacks are filled with clothing, shoes, and more to ensure that the children who receive them arrive at school confident and excited to learn. You can help by bringing a donation of new socks and underwear, and new or gently used clothing to this year's WGBH FunFest. Look for the purple Cradles to Crayons table to drop off donations, engage in a kid friendly service project, and learn more about how to get involved year round to ensure that more children in Massachusetts have access to the essentials they need to thrive.

A BIG thank you to our Sponsors
