Connecting Kids With Crayons


(cross-post from Publicyte blog)

Donna Woodall (Washington, DC) —

The organization Cradles to Crayons is an innovative, nonprofit organization that provides disadvantaged children with free school supplies. Recently, Microsoft and CVS partnered with Cradles to Crayons in Boston to fill 200 backbacks for kids aged 5-12 with critical back-to-school supplies, as well as personalized notes from our employees. Microsoft donated the backpacks and school supplies, and CVS supported by donating supplies like crayons (of course), glue, and pencils.

This effort is but just one of many citizenship activities that Microsoft and its employees participate in on a regular basis, connecting communities in need with information, technology, and other items. Learn more about our citizenship activities on our Local Impact Map.

Donna Woodall is Microsoft’s citizenship lead for the U.S. east coast.
