Volunteers Fill Backpacks for Annual Cradles to Crayons Event

Nov 12, 2023

Eighteen volunteers from A.I.M. Mutual joined the backpack assembly line this summer to provide area students with essential school supplies. A.I.M. Mutual is a Bronze Sponsor and has supported the Boston area Cradles to Crayons organization since 2016.

Our team put together 1200 backpacks and took home the Golden Pencil Award for most creative t-shirt design. This Ready for Learning initiative sent more than 40,000 backpacks to families and organizations ahead of the 2023 school year.

Cradles to Crayons Coordinators thanked this year's sponsors, noting "All of your support is making it possible for us to reach children in need in school districts across the state-we provide essentials to get kids ready to go from head to toe!"
Special thanks also go to our volunteers: Nina LaFauci, Bonnie Battite, Juliana Cameli, Carla Kavanaugh, Jorden Reynolds, Meghan Powers, Alison Haley, Brooke Murdock, Jill Ennis, Emma Brennan, Becca DaSilva, Stacy Gendron, Eileen Lavallee, Jen Green, Lizzy Corbett, Patti DeViller, Rich Richardson, and Dawn Hurley.
