Cradles to Crayons Volunteers

Children's essentials are needed by families of BMC throughout the year.  The Cradles to Crayons Coordinator will help connect BMC physicians and administrators with Cradles to Crayons, a non-profit organization, that provides new or gently used clothing and other essential items for children from birth to 16 years of age.  Volunteers are needed to deliver the items to BMC from Cradles to Crayons for distribution on a regular basis.
