To some, “warmth” can mean sharing a comforting smile with a stranger. To others, it’s cherishing moments with loved ones. But to a few, it can simply be the often forgotten luxury of physical warmth. Winter can be harsh at times. Although the first snowfall can be magical, the rest of winter can be a long and unforgiving journey for those who are less fortunate. With the brisk season approaching, thousands of local children are struggling to stay warm in our very own communities.
In this cold but hopeful season, give the gift of warmth. Cradles to Crayons' Gear Up for Winter program offers an opportunity to give back to the local community by distributing warm winter essentials to families in need. A thick coat. A warm hat. A pair of gloves. Anything can help and you make a difference! Every child deserves to enjoy festivities of winter, in warmth. It is said that experiencing physical warmth promotes interpersonal warmth, helping us build better bonds with one another. So, let us give the gift of warmth this season.
