Since 2018, Matthew Hamory has been a Managing Director with AlixPartners in Boston, Massachusetts, expanding the firm's competencies in grocery and pharmacy operations. Matthew Hamory also supports several charities, including Cradles to Crayons.
Despite the name, Cradles to Crayons needs much more than just crayons. Its KidPacks give newborns to 12 year olds what they specifically want and need. In each region in which it operates, Cradles to Crayons publishes a list of items most necessary to its continued operation.
While it accepts a wide range of clothes, school supplies, and toiletries, Boston's Cradles to Crayons chapter most needs blankets and clothing. Twin-sized blankets and sweaters for both boys and girls rank highly on the priority list. Girls' and boys' shirts also greatly help the Cradles to Crayons mission, as do boys' pants.
Any items accepted by Cradles to Crayons can be dropped off at one of the organization's community drop-off sites. These include homes and businesses operated by volunteers.
