Falcon “Giving Tree” Drive for Cradles to Crayons
Falcon employees Michael Berrie and Nicole Conaton were invited to visit the Cradles to Crayons Giving Factory in late November 2014. Founded in 2002, C2C works through volunteer efforts and community donations to supply children from birth to age 12 with basic necessities that their families may otherwise be unable to provide. Their Giving Factory located in Brighton, MA, is an expansive warehouse stocked with gently used and new items including clothing, toys, books, winter gear, bedding and other necessities.
Falcon committed to hosting a “Giving Tree” drive at both their Boston and New York offices to help re-stock shortages at the Giving Factory and make the holiday season a bit warmer and brighter for families in need. Trees were displayed in each office with ornaments depicting items in high demand and employees were encouraged to take the ornaments and include the items in their holiday shopping. Through the gift drive and monetary donations by employees, the Falcon team was able to provide clothing, winter gear and toys for 50 children in the greater Boston area.
