    As spring starts, it becomes time to start to think about spring cleaning. Whether this spring cleaning be in the garage or in a closet, it is always good to get rid of what you don’t need and give yourself a fresh start.

    While cleaning out your closet this year, think about donating any new or gently used items to Cradles To Crayons through the project going on right now at all Watertown Public Schools.

    Whether it be a few items or a few bags, anything that is donated is greatly appreciated, no matter the quantity! Keep in mind that because Cradles To Crayons focuses on helping children, clothing sizes should only go up to size medium but can be as small as infant clothing. Also, clothing should be free of stains and holes and shouldn’t include any religious references or sports teams other than Boston teams to ensure that any child could wear it.

    This project is part of Project 351, which is centered in Boston and makes it a mission to unite young leaders and changemakers from all over the state in one organization where they can explore and execute service projects and engage in leadership training.

    An eighth-grade ambassador from every town in Massachusetts is selected by teachers each year to participate in this program and has the opportunity to stay involved through a continuation of service projects, as well as application to the Alumni Leadership Team. Two other former ambassadors are still involved at Watertown High. Together they are running the townwide service project, engaging all five Watertown public schools.

    Be sure to look out for collection bins at all of the Watertown schools through April 6. All donations to Cradles To Crayons are greatly appreciated!

    For more information or to set up a donation, contact Honor Petrie at [email protected].
