ABOUT THE EVENT
The BIG GIVE is a multi-county collection day that benefits low income and homeless children across the Greater Philadelphia region. The Colonial Theatre is just one of many collection points in the county accepting donations during the drive.
Chamber members and residents are invited to go through their closets and dressers to identify good-condition clothing, shoes, lightweight jackets, winter coats & snow boots which your children or grandchildren may have outgrown since last year. Cradles to Crayons is also in need of new or gently-used books, toys and baby gear. Some critical items, such as socks, underwear, pajamas, and baby hygiene products (lotion, shampoo, pacifiers, etc.) must be new when donated. In the Cradles to Crayons Giving Factory warehouse in Conshohocken, collected items will be processed with their “Quality = Dignity” motto in mind, by hand-selecting items to create and distribute packages for specific kids.
The Colonial Theatre will accept your donations at its box office from Saturday, September 22 through Saturday, September 29 during regular box office hours: daily from 12:30 PM until 15 minutes after the final showtime of the day (listed at https://thecolonialtheatre.com/) Donations will be picked up by Cradles to Crayons at the end of the drive.
