Rating: 5 stars  

A fabulous resource for myself, my students, and my school. I was able to add so many resources to my classroom that I would not have been able to without them!

What a great resource. I have used their service and found it to be very beneficial. It is simply too expensive for teachers to supply school supplies to their students. This program really fills in the gap.

Crayons to Classrooms has helped me many times to provide the classroom essentials to my students who otherwise would not have had what they needed to be successful. The workers and volunteers are friendly and extremely helpful. THANK YOU to all the organization and people who make this an option for teachers. Your service saves us time, frustration and out of pocket money! S. Fitzgerald MVA

Crayons to Classrooms has a become a trusted and valued staple to teachers in the Dayton area. They make it possible for lots of kids to get supplies that they need, but otherwise can't buy themselves. Thanks to C2C and all of their donors for this much-needed support!

I am very grateful to Crayons To Classrooms! As an urban educator my students often times do not have the basic needs to be successful in school. I am able to select quality items that my students need without spending my personal money. Additionally, students appreciate having new items that are provided by this organization.

Crayons To Classrooms provides teachers with school supplies at no cost. These supplies are a blessing to my students whose parents can not afford to buy school supplies for them. They are a blessing to me as well since it helps me keep my students in the supplies they need to be successful in the classroom. I appreciate all they do for students across the area.

Crayons2Classrooms has been an invaluable resource for materials for my classroom. Not only student supplies, but clothes for the students, decorations for the holidays, and teacher resources that have increased my ability to assist my students with special needs in making gains toward mastering their IEP goals and objectives. The students are always excited to see and use the new materials when they come into the classroom.
What a wonderful place to "Shop"!

Crayons to Classrooms has been a fabulous support program for our school. They have provided supplies to our students that would not otherwise have been available due to cost.
Each year we have the opportunity to shop twice, once in the fall and again in the spring. They are always so accommodating and friendly and willing to help the school in any way possible.
