Dave Catugno

"Really? That's just bananas..."

Dave Cotugno is the Group Volunteer Service Fellow at Cradles to Crayons. He is responsible for scheduling all groups to volunteer at C2C. He’s also working as a volunteer leader in the Giving Factory, and developing our student programming for school groups.

How long have you been at Cradles to Crayons? What other roles have you held during your time (if any)?

4 weeks!

Describe working at Cradles to Crayons in 3 words or less.

Wicked tan-fastic.

Why did you decide to work at Cradles to Crayons?

I volunteered over Thanksgiving break and loved the way the company was run, and how many children we were able to serve on a weekly basis. All of the staff were so passionate about the C2C mission that I looked into opportunities.

What is the best part of your job?

Meeting new volunteers every day and inspiring new volunteers to come back and help out again

What was your favorite book, toy, or outfit as a child?

When I was only a few months old my parents put me in a green Celtics onezie. I still have the outfit, and plan to give it to my first child to wear when they are born.

What is your favorite memory from working at Cradles to Crayons?

I have only been here for 4 weeks (ish), but when the Grad school from Harvard came in, we completely reorganized the Toy station and Arts and Crafts Supplies station, and still managed to play wiffle ball and play catch with a nerf football during our breaks. They all wanted to come back so badly, and I saw a bunch of them using our donation station next to the Danger Room before they left.

What do you like to do in your spare time?

I love the Red Sox, and try to watch as many games as I can (and go to a few each season).

Where do you see yourself in 5 years?

Hopefully still working at Cradles, I love everything about it and want to be part of this team as we double our impact in the next 3 to 5 years.

What children’s character can you relate with most? Why?

Arnold from Hey Arnold. He’s a laid back kid who loves his life and doesn’t stress the big things. And has a stalker.

Thanks for sharing, Dave.  Stay tuned for more staff spotlights each Friday.
