Cradles to Crayons

Cradles to Crayons


The Maine South Cheerleaders have teamed up with Chicago charity Cradles to Crayons for a “Gear Up For Winter Drive” beginning this Thursday, October 10th at On Track Conferences and continuing thru Friday, October 18th.  


Cradles to Crayons (a Four Star Charity on Charity Navigator) works to provide 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 in play.  Since opening in Chicago in 2016, Cradles to Crayons have served more than 98,000 local children.  See the difference they make in the lives of Chicagoland children and families at


Please join the Maine South Cheer Team in supporting Cradles to Crayons with donations of new or gently used winter coats, warm clothing, winter boots, infant toys, toys for 7 to 12-year-olds and baby board books as well as new pajamas.  Donations can be dropped off in the collection bins at Door 3 at Maine South.
