Once Crunched Launch Party - TODAY!

To kick off “Once Crunched,” CGB is hosting a “Once Crunched Launch Party.” Today from 11:00 am to 1:00 pm, we will be showing off our gently used baby and children's items, munching on yummy treats (donated by our AMAZING friends at Gulu Gulu Cafe!) and learning about the wonderful organization "For Jake's Sake."

“For Jake’s Sake" is the current non-profit who will receive a portion of the proceeds from "Once Crunched." A local non-profit dedicated to offering financial assistance for autistic children in Massachusetts, "For Jake's Sake" was founded in 2008 by Dawn Cobak and works to help autistic children gain access to effective therapies they otherwise could not afford. To learn more about this wonderful organization, visit www.forjakessake.org.

If you can’t attend our party, but would like to schedule an appointment to donate gently used items (like organic clothing, wooden toys, cloth diapers, etc) or have questions, please contact Jennie or Amy at 978.741.0800 or crunchygranolababy@verizon.net.

More About Once Crunched: CGB recently launched a new line called “Once Crunched,” which consists of gently used baby and children’s items.Items closely resemble current CGB products (organic, fair trade, etc) and are both donated by and sold to eco-conscious customers.The aim of “Once Crunched” is to give families another way to go green. By donating their items, families are supporting a local business, recycling their own products and giving other families the opportunity to buy eco-products secondhand. Additionally, CGB provides a shop discount voucher for donated items and a 5% donation of “Once Crunched” proceeds to local, non-profit organizations.
