Brighton, MA – On March 2, Bowdoin participated in “Builders’ Day at Cradles to Crayons” in Brighton, where several organizations from engineering, architecture, and construction firms came together for networking and volunteering. Ten employees from Bowdoin Construction helped sort, size, and package goods to be placed in KidPacks for the children Cradles to Crayons serves.
For weeks before the event, Bowdoin held a product drive to collect clothing, toys, diapers, and hygiene products, and were able to donate a truckload of items to Cradles to Crayons.
Cradles to Crayons provides children from birth through age 12, living in homeless or low-income situations, with the essential items they need to thrive — at home, at school, and at play. These items are supplied free of charge by engaging and connecting communities that have with communities that need.
