Join us the day before ODTUG Kscope20 officially kicks off for the annual ODTUG Kscope Kathleen McCasland Community Service Day volunteer event, on Saturday, June 27 from 12 to 4 p.m.
This year, ODTUG has partnered with Cradles to Crayons, an organization dedicated to providing children living in homeless or low-income situations from birth through age 12 with these essential items they need to thrive—at home, school, and at play. When children lack essential items such as seasonably appropriate clothing, school supplies, and hygiene items, they cannot engage outside the home and miss out having the same opportunities as their peers. Cradles to Crayons provides clothing for a week, shoes, pajamas, socks, underwear, personal items, baby gear, and more. Approximately 250,562 children in Massachusetts live in poverty situations and may not have access to these basic essentials. Cradles to Crayons expects to serve 147,500 children in Massachusetts by the end of this year.
ODTUG Kscope attendees will be divided into small groups and assigned to various activities, which include quality checking donations, sorting clothing and other items by size and gender, and preparing KidPacks for specific orders from community partners. This is a great way to get involved and connect with other ODTUGers while you're in Boston.
If you want to join ODTUG Kscope in giving back to this truly amazing organization, be sure to select the community service day option when you register for ODTUG Kscope20. Space is limited for this event, so we encourage you to sign up early to guarantee your participation.
