Conicelli Dealerships Give Cradles to Crayons' Spring Greening Initiative a Giant-Sized Power Boost

Conicelli employees T.J. Smith, Internet manager, and Nicole Wellington, Toyota service consultant, hold Cradles to Crayons collection bags as they welcome donations at the Conicelli Autoplex in Conshohocken.
There’s less than one week remaining for area residents to participate in the Conicelli Auto Dealerships-Cradles to Crayons’ joint Great Green Spring Clean and Drive initiative.

The program, which ends Tuesday, April 30, provides an important – and vitally needed – opportunity to repurpose children’s items that are no longer needed and put them into the hands of low-income and homeless children in our community -- helping to mitigate the acute effects of poverty while keeping the items out of landfills.

Continuing through April 30 -- in support of the joint Great Green Spring Clean and Drive initiative -- the Conicelli Autoplex on Ridge Pike in Conshohocken, which includes Conicelli Toyota Scion, Honda, Nissan and Hyundai, and the Conicelli Toyota Scion dealership on Baltimore Pike in Springfield, will serve as collection points for the donated children’s items that have been forgotten, no longer fit, have fallen out of favor, or simply were never used. Dropoff boxes are located at each location.

Further supporting the “Great Green Spring Clean and Drive” program, the Conicelli dealerships are offering an additional incentive for area families to bring the new and nearly new children’s items needed by Cradles to Crayons for the area’s vulnerable children to their Conshohocken and Springfield locations: an opportunity to test drive one of our new hybrid-, electric- or natural gas-powered cars.

Cradles to Crayons accepts items for children in need, birth through 12, including new and nearly new infants’ and children’s clothing, socks and underwear, coats, hats, footwear, newborn baby items, baby safety equipment, books, and arts and crafts/school supplies. A more detailed list of needed items (and unacceptable ones, too) is available at  

The Conicelli Autoplex in Conshohocken is located at 1200 Ridge Pike, in Springfield at 860 Baltimore Pike.

Cradles to Crayons is a Montgomery County-based nonprofit that provides children, 0-12, in homeless or low-income situations in the Greater Philadelphia region, with essential items to alleviate the acute effects of poverty; supplying these items year-round without charge by connecting communities that have with communities that need -- concurrently fostering social change by providing meaningful, tangible volunteer experiences for adults and children.
