This week, members of Source One's Strategic Sourcing team lent a helping hand at the Cradles to Crayons' Giving Factory. Cradles to Crayons is a non profit organization with the mission of providing children from birth through age 12 in low-income situations with the essential items they need to thrive. For free of charge, they supply items such as clothing, shoes, school supplies, and toys.
To help Cradles to Crayons prepare for the back-to-school season, Source One's team members volunteered at the Giving Factory to help organize donated clothing that will be sent to children all over the Philadelphia area. As a consultancy focused on optimizing supply base relationships, working with Cradles to Crayons seemed the perfect opportunity to give-back to the Philadelphia-area, Source One calls home. Cradles to Crayons operates by connecting communities that have with communities that need.
“Cradles to Crayons always provides rewarding volunteer experience, as well as a valuable opportunity for team building,” shared Source One's VP of Operations, William Dorn. “Working toward a common goal outside the office helps foster a sense of a camaraderie throughout our company.”
