I volunteer for Crayons to Classrooms and the commitment on their part is intense and therefore it inspires us as volunteers to give our best. The jobs that we do as volunteers helps keep things ready for the teacher with few resources and they are so grateful. It is great to see it grow each year and be able to know students are benefiting from these supplies. A very worthy organization.

I volunteered at Crayons to Classrooms in Dayton as a UD student. I saw how dedicated and caring the teachers are and how under-resourced the school districts are. This organization solves the problem that so many teachers are facing! Great organization.
I am a volunteer with Crayons to Classrooms and enjoy seeing the wonderful resources and supplies that are provided to teachers in my area to help their students succeed! The staff is helpful, friendly and always willing to help out. When students have the supplies to succeed we all succeed as a community.
Amazing!! As a teacher in a high poverty school, my only options for getting needed materials are: A- My own pocket, or B- Crayons to Classrooms. The organization has helped so very much with an abundance and variety of needed materials. Thank you from the bottom of my heart!
Our company helps out annually with C2C and they really have their goals in order and volunteer opportunities well organized. It's a great organization to volunteer for and I plan to help out at all as much as I can in the future!
My entire family, including children, have volunteered with C2C and seen first hand the difference they make!
I am not a teacher, but have donated my time and items to Crayons to Classrooms. My business partner and I go to garage sales and buy up all school supplies we can find, then take them down to the donation center. We love teachers and enjoy supporting Crayons to Classrooms.
Crayons to Classrooms is such a blessing to me and my students. They have the proper school supplies they need to be successful in the classroom! I love volunteering for them and seeing other teachers benefit!
