This organization helps get classroom supplies into the hands of those students and teachers who need them most in these difficult economic times. It is a well-run, efficient operation and is generously supported by local individuals and businesses. At no cost to themselves, teachers can sign up for a supply-gathering spree twice a year, and there are always useful, necessary supplies to pick up. The warehouse location is conveniently located close to I-75 and once at the store, the supplies are easy to find. The staff are friendly and helpful, and check-out is a breeze, especially as no money changes hands. As supplies are donated, you do not know what is available until you get there, but I have never left disappointed. There is a limit on many items to make sure there is enough for all, but I could have used more essential supplies like pencils, paper, folders, notebooks.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Bigger limits on certain essential items. I understand this depends on the generosity of donors.

I teach grades 9-12 at a local high school, Trotwood-Madison, and I cannot thank Crayons to Classrooms for my "shopping trips"! My students and myself have reaped the benefits to our classroom with the pencils, paper, notebooks, note pads, crayons, glue, etc. We used these items to "Pay it Forward" to our elementary students in our "buddy" program. The high school students make small paper gifts for their individual "buddies" using the supplies mentioned above. These small tokens of appreciation would not have happen without the generosity of Crayons To Classrooms! Thank you for the supplies.

Crayons to Classrooms has been a wonderful opportunity for myself and for the students in my room. They have provided me with supplies that have allowed me to go above and beyond for the students in my room. Many of my students come to school without the necessary supplies so it's nice to have someone to help provide the needed supplies.

As a part time TItle I teacher, I always passed on the invitation to visit C2C. But, now that I am teaching Kindergarten, I NEED my visits!! It is so nice to bring back winter gloves and hats for the kids in my class who come without them. My writing center is always stocked with fun writing materials, notepads, and paper of all sizes. Thank you Crayons to Classrooms!

This organization gives their hearts to others and a whole lot more. I have never seen an organization who gives so much to the community around them. They provide the "stuff" students need to survive in the classroom free of charge to their teachers and provides that service with smiles on all their faces. I love to go to the Crayon to Classroom store not only to shop but to interact with the enthusiastic crew that is working that day!!!!

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Make their organization even more well known. Maybe branch out to the airforce base located nearby.

I have been fortunate enough to "shop" at Crayons to Classrooms for the past few years. The donations they give to my classroom are much appreciated by my students and me. Without Crayons to Classrooms, I would have to spend even more money buying my students the supplies they need. Many of my students' families do not have the extra funds to buy the typical school supplies they need. I hope Crayons to Classrooms is available for many years to come.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Nothing.

I am a teacher who teaches children who come from a low-economic background. Their parents are often unable to provide school supplies for their children. Without Classrooms to Crayons, my students whould simply go without. The opportunities to shop here several times a year make a world of difference for my students!

Crayons To Classroom is a wonderful program that assists my students who are learning with less. My students come from low income families where purchasing school supplies often does not happen. I am grateful for this program assisting my students with the necessary supplies to be successful, lifelong learners! The smiles on my students faces is the ultimate FEELING! Thank you Crayons for all your hard work and dedication to keep this program going and growing! Without this program, my students would otherwise continue to do more with less.

In the library/media center, students are in constant need of supplies for projects. C2C makes it possible for me to offer those supplies to students.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

It would be nice if number limits varied based on subject taught. In the library, I need more of items for projects like glue sticks, pencils, ect. This would be too huge of an undertaking to do, but it would be nice.
