Pass it on; Help a Child-in-need

Now through August 31


Cradles to Crayons


Wellesley Dental Group is hosting a drive this summer for Cradles to Crayons, a non-profit that provides low income and homeless Massachusetts children from infancy to age 12 with everyday essentials.

The drive began on Monday, July 13 at our office, 5 Seaward Road in Wellesley, MA and will continue through August 31, 2009.


This is a great organization to donate to; to thank everyone who participates, we want to give something in return. So now, every person who donates as part of the drive will receive a $500 certificate toward Invisalign® treatment from Wellesley Dental Group (for use through Sept. 30, 2009) which can be given to a third party. The suggested minimum donation is $50, but people are also welcome to donate in kind with some of the most needed items, which are listed below.  Please bring donations in person to us during office hours: Monday – Thursday, 8 am – 5 pm, or Friday, 9 am – 4 pm.  All donations are tax-deductible and receipts will be available.

The suggested items for donations in kind are:

  • New or Gently used children’s clothing, size newborn – 16/18
  • New or Gently used baby items, i.e. bedding/boppy pillows/etc.
  • New socks and underwear
  • New school supplies

All donated goods must be new or top quality, and contain all pieces and instructions.  Cradles to Crayons cannot accept goods that are missing pieces, broken, dirty, stained, torn, worn out, written on, or clearly out of style.  Please bring your donations in plastic bags or sealed boxes to keep them clean and organized.

More information about the organization is available at www.cradlestocrayons.org
